Spirit of 2000 Easy to Maintain

September 28, 2000|VALERIE GUTIERREZ

The Olympics will be over next week, but www.everything australian.com makes it easy to keep the Aussie spirit with more than 800 Australian products.

The U.S.-based company started by a Australian couple features Sydney Games collectibles such as an Olympic mascot towel and Olympic pins.

For Australians living in L.A., show your Aussie pride with a "Down Under" or "G'day mate" license plate or a "Parking for Australians Only" sign.

Or wear a part of the land down under with Australian coin watches, koala and kangaroo backpacks, T-shirts, rugby jerseys, hats and Aussie-themed jewelry.

The Web site also sells magnets, figurines, hand-painted boomerangs, food, beauty products and Aboriginal products like a cool snake letter opener.

For children there's a selection of activity and coloring books, stickers and Australian stuffed animals.

And for the music lover, buy Aussie CDs, or a didgeridoo and a book on how to play this indigenous instrument. And then you'll never have to say goodbye, mate.
