Christmas shopping

The holidays are upon us.
Time to start thinking about Christmas if you haven’t already.
Why not find something that feels custom-made, like it was built just for that special person?
Chances are that we have something built that will appeal to those hardest to buy for in a way that nothing else could.
Due to the tremendous effort and logistics of gathering components, time is up for a custom, though we can print a gift certificate for you for any within our editions.
Every piece is an event unto itself, and destined to become treasured family heirlooms, and designated favorite.
Here are a few suggestions, and a range for every budget,  these represent pieces that are currently in stock and ready to ship:

This day in history: Lewis & Clark

205 years ago today; August 31, 1803, at 11 a.m. local time, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark (Lewis and Clark) left Pittsburgh. Their destination was the Pacific Ocean.
On November 20, 1805, they achieved that goal.

A significant day in history, and worthy of a tribute like this one by NW Limited…History in VogueTM:
