It is always good to look on ebay -- just remember to click the enlarge buttons to really see the items.

Here is an vintage Jersey City Zippo from the 50's (By the way - the working part of all Zippos are guaranteed for life by Zippo):
http://cgi.ebay.com/Brushed-Jersey-Ci ... em3a5c9228cf#ht_500wt_945

How about an old post card titled Snowfall on Central Ave -- circa 1908:
http://cgi.ebay.com/1908-PHOTO-POSTCA ... em27b32cd001#ht_500wt_945

This would make a great shaving Cup - Jersey City Heights - the old elevated rail line:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Jersey-City-Patte ... em2a0866ee76#ht_702wt_928

Racey Dixon Mill's card -- well racey for the 70's ( the 1870's):
http://cgi.ebay.com/Victorian-Trade-C ... ain_0&hash=item483a8aae35

... if you want something even racier:
http://cgi.ebay.com/CLIMAX-TOBACCO-Vi ... m20b200d61f#ht_4913wt_702

Nice antique Lunch Box:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Lorillard-Tobacco ... m45f2e46f64#ht_6424wt_754

...Another Jersey City tobacco tin ( It looks rough but a tiny amount of olive oil or shoe polish will make this look much better):
http://cgi.ebay.com/TWIN-OAKS-TOBACCO ... em5ada38db61#ht_500wt_719

Look at Lafayette Park at the turn of the century (the 20th century) :

You've got to get something related to railroads and/or Ellis Island... maybe Central Railroad of NJ related... the gift shop near the parking lot in Liberty State Park has some great stuff.

That's the stand-alone building on Audrey Zapp Drive... not the one inside the terminal itself.

A stop sign, but instead of saying "STOP" it says:

SLOW DOWN
(just a little bit, never mind the pedestrians, keep talking on your cell phone)

I believe the owners of Fizzy Lizzy live in JC. You should call them.

feed your soul, but i'm not sure if their retail is still open. fizzy lizzy I've always heard was from JC, but gothamist.com makes me think otherwise.

White Mana on Tonnele Avenue sells a cool t-shirt that says Jersey City. Also, there is a cool Jersey City Heights t-shirt with a skull and roses at Kings on Central Avenue.

I am looking to put together a Jersey City themed gift bag -- what would be good to include? I'm specifically looking for things made in JC - like baked goods from Made With Love, things like that.
Are there any local drink/soda companies that were started in JC? For some reason Fizzy Lizzy comes to mind, but not sure if it is really from JC.

Thanks!
