The eternal debate: Drums or flats? What will you choose?
Drumstick Wing Ornament
Five mice. One box of rice. You can imagine the adventures these rodents have in pursuit of their prized cereal grain! By the way, as far as directly following the song goes, the book Five Hungry Mice does it best. See, while on the fourth day of Christmas in the song, the true love sends four calling birds, this book pub does you one better – we send you five mice (in illustrated form of course). They are much quieter than calling birds. Do lock up your Basmati though… And, just what a mouse (or mice) would like is the Buffalo favorite, sponge candy, a crisp chocolate-covered caramelly treat, in ornament form.

The lavishly illustrated, 150-page book will be deeply appreciated by the history buffs on your list, and the unique Bethlehem Steel blown glass ornament celebrates one of Albright’s lesser known enterprises as well as the tens of thousands of steel workers who helped build this nation.
Follow the lives of John and Patrick Donahue as they grow up in the Old First Ward in Buffalo, New York during the mid-1800s. Orphaned as children, they are sent to live with their grandmother. While John finds work and helps support the family, Patrick becomes involved with a gang and runs wild. When the Civil War breaks out, the brothers join the Union army. Follow them through the deadly battles of Grant’s Virginia campaign to Appomattox, the difficulties they face holding jobs once the war is over, their relationships with wives, children, and one another, and Patrick’s lifelong battle with the bottle. A compelling tale of two Irish Catholic men, sons of immigrants, during a tumultuous period in our nation’s rich history.
The fascinating story of the elusive man who brought steel to Buffalo, harnessed the power of Niagara Falls, and gave Buffalo its most treasured gift: the Albright Art Gallery. To tell this compelling tale required a long and circuitous journey, from small town archives to big city libraries, tracking down Albright descendents in New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts to sift through the many layers of mystery which have for so long shrouded this enigmatic man. The result is a beautiful, illustrated biography of industrialist and philanthropist John J. Albright, one which reveals the remarkable story of a man and the turn-of-the-century city in which he lived. Exquisite photographs by Susan Fuller Albright bring to life this extraordinary man and his family.
