Bye Bye, Skymall

Confession: For ages, one guilty pleasure I’ve had on flights is perusing the Skymall catalog to pick out the weirdest item available for in-flight purchase.


This $995 suit of armor has won multiple times.

If Spouse is flying with me, we’d often separately pick out pretend gifts for each other, and usually the reveal (Zombie yard sculptures! Crazy cat lady sweatshirts!) would result in fits of laughter.

Despite all the looking, I never actually took the plunge to buy anything from Skymall and apparently no one else did either: Skymall announced a bankruptcy filing last week.

PerhapsĀ the garden gnomes will go on sale soon?
