Classic 5" x 7" photograph, 13" W x 11"H overall, with brass plate featuring replica signature and inspiring quote from Ronald Reagan:
"From new freedom will spring new opportunities for growth, a more productive, fulfilled, and united people, and a stronger America - an America that will lead the technological revolution and also open its mind and heart and soul to the treasures of literature, music, poetry and the values of faith, courage, and love. America must remain freedom's staunchest friend, for freedom is our best ally and it is the world's only hope to conquer poverty and preserve peace."

St. Patrick’s Cathedral
- $ 65.00
Architecture has been called "the mother of all the arts," and Saint Patrick's Cathedral, on the corner of New York's Fifth Avenue and 51st Street, is a masterpiece of the decorated and geometric style of Gothic ecclesiastical architecture as well as one of the structural wonders of New York City.
The Cathedral is noted for its purity of style, originality of design, harmony of proportions, beauty of material, and workmanship. It is existing proof that American architects and American artisans can hold their own with the architects and artisans of the Old World and that Catholics of America can raise sacred structures that captivate and cultivate the admiration of those who see it.

Master sculptor Ovidin Colea captures the soaring, symmetrical composition, the beauty and grace that dominated the midtown skyline when it was completed in 1879. His 11-inch-high scaled replica is an extraordinary work of art in its own right, cast from two pounds of banded marble and coated with a hand-painted metallic finish. Crafted in New York City.

Faithful Lincoln Rocker

The Fire Truck

The Gentleman's Companion (2-Volume Set)
The Gentleman's Companion (2-Volume Set)

The Cattleman’s Steak Book
- $ 65.00
Larry “Cat” Ellman’s New York City institution recaptured the charm and manly elegance of a plush San Francisco saloon or hotel at the turn of the century, and became one of the nation’s most successful restaurants. Naturally, beef was its specialty, and The Cattleman’s Steak Book’s 200 recipes capture the flavor of distinctively Western dining from “the adult Western restaurant.”

Plaza Suite Collection
- $ 24.00
New York without the Plaza is unthinkable. It is the embodiment of the “Grand Hotel,” even if it pales in size to the likes of the Waldorf-Astoria. With its roofline peaks and rounded turrets, high loggias and balconies topping its facade, the Plaza is the city's best chateau that, like a fine wine, has aged well.
The Plaza pampers its guests with the most indulgent genuine Turkish towels, velour robes, and plush linens. Now you can wrap up in textures worthy of Plaza luxury in your own home.

Unsurpassed Mascioni Turkish towels, with an abundance of tightly wound loops, are legendary for exceptional warmth, softness and absorbency. Toweling is generously sized. Each piece is 100% cotton terry, 600-gram weight, finished with straight hems on all sides and attractive chevron border. Softness is greatly enhanced with subsequent washings.

Set includes 13”x13” Washcloth; 19”x32” Hand Towel; and 27”x54” Estate-Size Bath Towel.

Rosanna "Hot Chocolate" Collection

Junior's Cheesecake
- $ 36.00
From its corner on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn, Junior's Restaurant produces a tall, bronze-skinned, dense classic with an orchestration of different textures. At the core, it is cool, thick, smooth, satiny, and creamy. Radiating outward, it goes gradually from velvet to suede, then, finally, about the edges, it becomes cake-like and fine-pored. The flavor is a complex play of many exciting and subtle flavors -- sweet, tangy, and rich to boot.
