There is a shop in New York City I've always wanted to check out. And after recently reading Charlotte Lyons' post (house wren studio) about the classes she is teaching over at Tinsel Trading Company, I was even more inspired to visit this store. So after we were done at ABC Carpet and Home and Fishs Eddy, I asked my family if they would indulge me one more time with a walk over to Tinsel Trading. It was a relatively comfortable winter afternoon and we like to walk in the city, so off we went for a 20 block stroll.
Being a peak time for tourists, it was a little more congested on the city sidewalks than usual, but we finally reached our destination . . . to discover that Tinsel Trading is CLOSED on Sundays! Oops! Now what? I dragged my poor family all this way; I felt like I had to make it up to them. So we walked over to nearby Macy's to see their spectacular holiday windows. So beautiful!
Plus, I discovered another amazing store along the way!
M&J Trimming is a New York institution and is known to be a favorite shopping destination for the world's top fashion designers, costume makers, interior designers, and sewing/craft enthusiasts. Located on Sixth Avenue between 37th and 38th streets, this shop has floor to ceiling buttons, floor to ceiling ribbon, floor to ceiling trim, floor to ceiling eye candy!
What an incredible place! New York City never fails to surprise and inspire.
I'll make it to Tinsel Trading someday. Maybe I'll take the train in sometime on a Monday, my day off from T-Party.
