Posted at 5:10 PM, Dec 07, 2018

Mary Louise Stanley has an awesome job. She's in charge of picking out all the merchandise you'll find at the Buffalo History Museum Shop. Mary Louise says "we have everything Buffalo here. We really love to support our local artists, our local artisans and our local jewelry people.

Much of the "merch" here has a Buffalo-History theme. There are map ties that Mary Louise explains "we took a map from our collection and turned it into a tie." 

There are lots of local authors to discover here as well as the Buffalo connection to Fisher-Price, the Wizard of Oz and the defunct Birge Wallpaper Company. "we've taken some of their wallpaper brands and put them into notebooks" Mary Louise says.

To highlight the current "Icons" exhibit Mary Louise says "we partnered with New Era and they made a special hat for us."
