Erika and the WLCoWSVoWLT profiled in Go Galavanting

Great writeup in a travel mag targeted at independent women, Go Galavanting.
"I love finding the bizarre and unexpected that many people pass up because they don't want to be 'taken in' by a tourist trap. I want to see!" So says Erika Nelson, founder and creative mind behind the wandering World's Largest Collection of World's Smallest Versions of the World's Largest Things. Tourist traps are Nelson's stock-in-trade, having navigated the country's backroads and highways in search of the monuments to eccentricity, creativity and good-ole Americana.

World's Largest Things is exactly what it sounds like: curated by Nelson, it is a collection of models resembling those "World's Largest" things you see on the road when traveling. The World's Largest Thermometer, Penny, Turkey… You name it, Nelson's most likely seen it, not to mention created a miniature version of said thing.

Eccentric? Absolutely. But to Nelson, it's much more than that.  Check out the entire story here: Galavanter: Erika Nelson of World's Largest Things
