Gift Ideas

"Flowers wilt, chocolates get eaten, but a good case of poison ivy? Now there's a  gift she'll remember you for!"  

   (anonymous male relic hunter)

_______________

When it comes to special occasions, there are two truths concerning Civil War enthusiasts:

(1) A true buff wants nothing more for Christmas, their birthday, or Bar mitzvah, than a good Civil War Related item.

(2) It's almost impossible for a non-enthusiast to buy for a true Civil War buff.

...until now...

Now, we at Greybird hope to break new ground by offering suggestions on what to buy that Civil War nut...er, BUFF, for those special occasions.  Here are some items designed to please most collectors, relic hunters, and historians...and if not?  Well, they can return the item in thirty days for full credit (minus shipping) towards what they really want.  We also offer gift certificates...everybody likes those!
