TINSEL TRADING COMPANY, 1 W. 37th St., NY, NY 10018
One of those secrets that everyone knows about, if you an artist or designer, is Tinsel Trading Company.Talk about a magical place- this is it! From antique tinsel, old military trim, bullion, flowers, glass glitter, passementerie, ephemera, ribbon- no one has the unusual and vintage trims that Tinsel does. And new items are often reproduced just for them. Martha Stewart once called it her favorite store. It's over 100 years in existence- check out the website: www.tinseltrading.com. I love her old bullion and metal threads. I use them to make my steampunk bird's nests.
