Did anyone bring back anything cool from Bonnaroo that they'll cherish for a long time (i.e. not from one of the vendors?) I got one of the horns from MIA's last show, the guitar pick from !!!, and a hemp necklace from the really cool redneck hippies (as contradictory as that may sound) who gave me a ride to the airport.
In all honesty the work of art that I bought from Morgan Steele this year will probably be my most prized Roo possession. I know it's technically a vendor item, but it's a one-of-kind painting on a piece of plywood from the post office. I can't think of much that would top it. Maybe Eugene Hutz's underwear. I don't know. That would be creepy...or awesome!

I got an unbelievably cool Marc Ecko jacket from my new friend Jason who was camped out next to us. We actually worked a trade out, but I have no idea what I traded for it! I also got a c.d. and multiple buttons from Ray Bong- President of Bonnaroo.
Well I got my bonnaroo cherry popped and it was amazing. I also got some of the wine at the Gogol Bordello show when the lead singer crowd surfed out into the crowd at the end. I was pretty drunk and was wearing a mexican wrestling mask and I'm sorry if I pissed anyone off but that music makes me get out of control.

I have one of the comedy tent admission passes. I got it to see Janeane Garofalo and lost track of time, missed the show and didn't have time to go see another comedy show with it. And some moonshine from our neighbors.
Not sure if this counts for what you're looking for, but I bought one of the My Morning Jacket concert posters, signed by the artist.
That definitely counts. Just to clarify, when I said 'not from the vendors', I meant no t-shirts and stuff like that, which are a dime a dozen. But posters, artwork, autographed instruments, etc. all count.

I bought a one-hitter from a guy walking around camp sites. It's pretty crappy, but it does say Bonnaroo on it. It's kinda like a shot glass souvenir for me. In addition to that I got a United States of Bonnaroo pin right before leaving for free. It's really crappy too, but it serves as a great reminder for the weekend.
How much did the signed MMJ run for? Was it in the silent auction?
And how did you manage to get a strand of bow hair, uhhme? That sounds awesome.

I am so jealous of everybody who got guitar picks and set lists and BOW HAIR ahhh. SO JEALOUS. It is like my dream to get a guitar pick from a show. No actually, a drumstick would be even better, that is my absolute dream. So iSkew I am extremely jealous of you and your Vampire Weekend drumstick. Aagghhh. I've never gotten anything awesome from a show like that.
