Who needs a couch when you can have a row of seats!

If you are anything like us, there is probably at least one piece of airline or airport memorabilia somewhere in your house. Coming across these items isn’t always easy, however. Any #AvGeek would love to have a row of economy seats in their living room, but where can you buy it!? The internet, of course! Southwest Airlines is currently running an online charity auction, featuring fantastic airline and airport swag such as aircraft logos, gate signs, model airplanes, vintage posters, and even a row of seats.

The charity auction is helping to raise money for the organization Shared Housing Center of Dallas, which helps provide shelter for the homeless in Dallas. We love buying airline memorabilia, and helping out a charity in the process is a win-win. All auction end May 16th at 4pm, so hurry up and bid on that Southwest cookie jar, it’ll look great in your kitchen!
