Lightbulb shops in new york



Can any of you lovely peeps help me. I live in England, but my lovely friend is coming to New York to stay in the waldorf astoria for her holidays. As I am craft mad she said she will buy me some craft bits if I let her know what I want. Can anyone reccomend what shops there are that she will be able to buy dies stamps etc for me.

Any help would be much appreciated please.

The only thing I can recommend is to Google "stamp shops in New York." That seems to work often.

This is the one place I have seen people mention repeatedly:

You could try emailing the shop through its website and ask what lines they carry. However, it's located in lower Manhattan, which was just hit by Super Storm Sandy and may not be open now.

I believe the Ink Pad is the only rubber stamp store in NYC. There is also Tinsel Trading (and the area around the store) that carries alot of embellishments.

It's been a while, but The Ink Pad is a great store. It is tiny and packed with stamps. If you are just looking for interesting supplies, you can also try some of the small shops in Greenwich Village that sell Indian trinkets. I found some nice wood block/batik stamps and paper.

Everything below 34th Street is without power right now. Hopefully, things will be up and running soon; but right now I don't think anyone in either the East or the West Village is open.

The Ink Pad is tiny, but fun. It's at 37 7th Ave, the corner of 13th Street. (You'd think a city the size on NY would have more such stores!) I would hope by holiday time, lower Manhattan will be more "dried out" and navigable. Enjoy!

The Ink Pad may be tiny, but it is PACKED from floor to ceiling with stamps! I could spend hours in there and still feel like I could go back the next day for another look! NYC isn't much of a crafty town, but as far as stamping is concerned, I don't know if it gets any better than The Ink Pad.

Also, for Lee's Art Supply on 57th St. between Broadway and 7th Avenue is a fabulous art/gift store with a small scrapbook department that has most of the current papers and supplies. The store itself is a treasure! Beautiful photo albums, journals, pens, plus little clusters of craft and hobby items. They attract a lot of nyc art students and have a large selection of fine art supplies. There are also three other floors - lighting (gorgeous selection of mostly modern fixtures, high end business presentation supplies and, on the top floor, an toy store with some less mainstream items - many of them educational and art-related.]

Overall - a fun store!

There is also Paper Presentation on West 18th Street, between 5th Avenue and 6th Avenue. It's a relatively big store (only one floor) with a good-sized scrapbooking/stamping section. The prices at The Ink Pad are very high. The prices at Paper Presentation are a little better. The prices at Michael's are pretty much the same as other M's, and I don't really know much about the prices at Lee's. There is also a Kate's Paperie on Broome Street. It's a high-end paper store with high prices, but their papers are gorgeous! I hope your friend enjoys her holidays and picks up some wonderful goodies for you.
