This “Dancing With The Stars” inspired item is the newest (and very limited edition) item that has been added to the list.  If you are a Chelsea Kane fan you will recognize these as the shoes she wore on the show:

Officially Gowalla has stated that you can find this item when you “check-in to places where you get your groove on”.  So go out and find your Gowalla groove.  Not only is the item inspired by Chelsea, you can also find her and follow her on Gowalla here.

SXSW Item Updates

March 28, 2011 Leave a comment

For those of you that were able to make it to our fair city of Austin, TX to experience all the greatness of SXSW we hope that you were able to score a few of the new items.  These items were inspired by various partnerships (Southwester Airlines) and product launches (iPad 2 at the special SXSW Apple “Pop Up” Store).  If you were around to take part in any of the Gowalla parties you might have also been able to snag the “Golden Viewmaster” and the “Gowallaby Ballooon”.

It’s pretty cool to just add this little item to your archive list, but it doesn’t stop there.  When you find one you get a chance to win a prize from Southwest airlines!

A few weeks ago Gowalla released another item for us all to go out and find.  Continuing their theme of roadside wildflowers they have added the “Firewheel

This compliments their other two flowers, the Bluebonnet, and the flower that inspired Gowalla’s original company namesake, the Alamofire.

Speaking of Alamofire, does anyone out there (that doesn’t work for Gowalla) have the original Alamo Fire company custom stamp?

If you have been out and about looking for coffee, you’ve probably noticed that your Gowalla neighborhood has looked a little different lately. Starbucks, Peet’s Coffee & Tea, Dunkin Donuts, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, and Seattle’s Best are now all proudly displaying their logos. This has prompted the addition of another new item: “The Milk Steamer”:

Check in at any coffee shop (featured or not) to try and dig up one of these items. There are many, many national chains and local coffee shops who are now getting into the Gowalla spirit. I’m sure i’m missing some, so feel free to suggest additions:

Gowalla Goes To The Movies

February 14, 2011 Leave a comment

It looks like Gowalla’s recent partnership with AMC and Cinemark has prompted the release of a new item for all of our vaults:

Gowalla has always been tied to the local Austin movie scene. So much so that one of it’s original featured locations was the Alamo Drafthouse.  But, it has also added the red and yellow custom stamps to it’s satellite locations as well.

But you don’t have to be in Austin to enjoy a little Gowalla movie action.  Just grab your Valentine and get out and Gowalla tonight at your local AMC or Cinemark locations.
