Kid in a Candy Store: NYC Garment District

From a block's distance, I spotted the attractive ribbon inspired banner on the side of the building. I knew that I had to discover the treasures in M & J Trimming. Even though I'm not a seamstress nor an aspiring designer, I felt like a kid in a candy store in this Garment District store.

The large store boasts a truly dizzying myriad of beads, lace, ribbon, and trim in all colors and styles. A bridal salon in the back of the store offers some of the most exquisite trim I have ever seen for a wedding dress. They even sell bases to make fascinators...I'm thinking Kentucky Derby!

The Greek Key trim reminded Alexia of one of my Tory Burch tunics. Buy as little or as much as you would like. Although my purchase totaled less than $10, employees cheerfully helped me to select the perfect ribbon.

There's grosgrain ribbon galore. I also loved the preppy designs on the webbing for D-ring belts.

Bling anything with Swarovski crystals in all colors and sizes. Inspiration is everywhere at this store, with examples of completed products prominently displayed.

Visiting Tips:
M & J Trimming is located at 1008 Sixth Avenue between 37th and 38th Streets in New York City. It's a relatively easy walk from Times Square or Rockefeller Center. Be prepared to spend a bit of time at the store because there is so much to see!
