1. Paleta Cart by Amanda Infante
You know it's spring in San Antonio when you hear the ring of the paleta cart bells. Local maniac Amanda Infante created this medal to celebrate the frozen treats. The medal is $10 with a dollar from every sale going to Girls Inc. San Antonio and can be purchased at

2. Avo Man by Rudy Fernandez Produce
One of my favorites created by Rudy Fernandez Produce located at 1500 S. Zarzamora. Featuring an avocado with the pit as his nose, the character is wearing a sombrero and surrounded by fruit! The cost is $8 and available at their Zarzamora store from 5 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
3. Jim's Restaurants
This medal is super cute, with all the Jim's favorites surrounding the edge in a very Fiesta Wreath style. The coffee dangle is an added bonus in the middle. $5 at all Jim's Restaurants, I had to get one for my daughter as well.

4. Rico's Products
Who doesn't love the country's favorite nacho cheese? This bright medal is kind of two parts — below is the psychodelic nacho truck complete with jalapeños and above is a medal at the top of the ribbon with the cheese droplet logo. The medal can be purchased online or in the store for $10.

5. El Borracho by SA Flavor
Everyone knows the tradition of stacking cups at NIOSA and Oyster Bake, so I decided to memorialize it in my personal medal with this Lotería Card that plays on El Borracho. Medals are $10 with a dollar going to Snack Pak 4 Kids and can be purchased at
6. Chris Madrids
Who doesn't love the macho burger? This San Antonio staple is celebrated on a 2017 medal by Chris Madrids that commemorates the 40th anniversary of the store. $10 and proceeds benefit SAMM Ministries.
