Larry Stone wrote on October 12, 2012: My wife and I have had the pleasure of visiting the visitor center twice in about 2 years. We thoroughly enjoyed our visitation both times. I am asking about the Bush Beans pin which we saw in the gift shop near the register. We thought that we had purchased one during our last visit, but once we arrived home, we found that we had not bought one. Is there any way that we can purchase one on line? Hope to hear from you soon. L. Stone
