Did you know when Santa Claus is in a pinch to get toys delivered to all the good little boys and girls on time he jumps on the Rochester Subway? No, of course not—that’s stupid. The Subway closed over 50 years ago.
But, when his crafty elves are looking for gift ideas they check the RochesterSubway.com gift shop. That part is true!
Here are a few nifty ideas shared with me by Rochester Subway fans last year…
Textile artist Jennie Fox makes handmade quilts, children’s clothes, and fashion accessories. Last December Jennie needed a cool gift box to go with her cool wares. So she came up with these origami gift boxes made from old Rochester Subway Posters. Amazing!
Paul Schacht’s daughter is a huge fan of trains and especially the Rochester Subway. So he took an RTC token to Glen Moscoe Jewelers on South Clinton Avenue where, for under 50 bucks, they turned the transit token into this token of fatherly love—a stunning necklace!
Did you give or receive a totally kickass subway gift last year? Let me know about it or leave a comment below.
