I was so grateful for the list of great suggestions of things to do in New York when I announced that I was going to there about a month ago. One of the suggestions that came up a few times was M & J Trimming. Little did I know that this is somewhat of a NY icon. It’s located on 6th Avenue between 37th and 38th, just up the street from Macy’s Department Store.
If you need it, this place has got it! Holy smokes. That wall is just ribbon.
And here is the wall of Crystals.
Buttons anyone? And this was only a fraction of the button collection.
My pictures just don’t do this place justice. Pretty much everything you need for weddings, crafting, making clothes, studs for your inner-motorcyle-babe wear, Renaissance Festival gown, you name it. You know that if this is where Martha Stewart comes to get her crafting supplies, it’s got to be fabulous.
You can order from their huge selection online at mjtrim.com.
Once again (as with Purl Soho) expect to pay New York City scale prices. (And why not? After all, they do cater to the likes of Martha.) Coming from Utah, Land of Abundant (and often Cheap) Craft Supplies, I didn’t buy much. But I couldn’t walk away totally empty-handed and found these cute little trims. Love those dapper little Scottie Dogs.
If you’re going to the Fabric District in NY, M & J Trimming is totally worth the stop! Next field trip: The Fabric District.
