MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has done more than just spark a new political battle.

It has let loose a celebration of the life of this pioneering justice. You can even to go stores and buy RBG merchandise.

"We're a female-owned business, we're locally owned, we're pretty much all female employees, so we're all very invested in that," said Alyssa Grizmer, manager of Broadway Paper, a stationary store in Milwaukee's Historic Third Ward.

They've had long lines of customers since Friday, looking for the Ruth Bader Ginsburg items they sell.

You'll find them on a table with a feminist, girl power theme, and even though Supreme Court justices are very serious people, the items on this table are kind of fun.

"We have a really cool mug I'm actually looking at right now. It changes -- so it changes from her robes from being in the Supreme Court to her wearing like a sweatsuit for working out, I think it says 'diva' on it, when you use coffee or like a hot drink or something like that."

They also sell RBG pins, puzzles, greeting cards and a magnetic paper doll set.

Broadway Paper is at Broadway and Chicago in the Third Ward.
