There was a guy set up at the Stormville Flea Market that had a large booth with all kinds of shirts, towels, bibs, T shirts, Sweatshirts, all with the Italian flag and the words “IT’S GRAVY NOT SAUCE.”
I didn’t buy but I got his card and website below.

Now for all of you who weren’t fortunate enough to be born Italian. or had Italian relatives, or ever lived in Trenton New Jersey, or had family there- tomato sauce isn’t called sauce, it’s called gravy and pizza isn’t called pizza, it’s called tomato pie.

The old Italian neighborhood in Trenton is called Chambersburg or to the locals, “The Burg.” Sadly there is very little left of the original neighborhood flavor. Twenty years ago it was all Italian with probably 10 great restaurants. The last of the restaurants, Roman Hall closed last year and is now gone but not forgotten. Number 2 son had his college graduation there with his cousin. I don’t remember exactly but I think it was less about $15 a head including wine and more food to take home than a strong person could carry.
