A lot of times when friends come to visit, they pine for some sort of Albany souvenir. There are some, but none are really that great and it’s the same with Albany postcards. When I saw the first photo of The Albany Patch, I was stoked.
For quite some time now, I’ve been on the hunt for an Albany souvenir patch. After some extensive searching, I determined that for some reason, they don’t exist. That didn’t stop me from wanting one, so I decided to design one myself and have them produced. Probably not quite what Gandhi meant by “Be the change you wish to see in the world,” but fuggit.
Knowing that these might not be around forever I got my hands on some. You can do the same over at thealbanypatch.com. These make great gifts so consider grabbing more than just one for yourself. And big thanks to Mitch for going through and making something he wanted, but didn’t exist.
