    Cheesy craft supplies in NYC?

    Hi there, I am having a bit of a problem finding craft supplies on the cheesier side (specifically googly eyes and mini coloured pom-poms) in NYC. Any suggestions? I try not to shop at chains, but there are times when I do wish we had a Michael's here. (we don't do we?)
    Thanks!
    Bree

    Bree,

    I have a bag of googly eyes that I have decided to not use. I don't remember the size offhand (I'm at work right now), but I can mail them to you or we could meet up tomorrow night some time if you want them.

    Let me know.

    take the a, c, or f to jay st/borough hall...there's a rad arts and crafts store called wc arts. they have crafts for little kids, like googley eyes, and diorama supplies like little trees and animals, as well as great aquabee paper, cool dover books, kits galore, and all sorts of regular art supplies like paint and pencils, etc.

    *edited cos you're already in brooklyn and i warned you it was in brooklyn*

    I know Pearl Paint on Canal St. has some googly eyes and other assorted craft items. It's not like a Michaels but it's pretty good.[/b]

    The place to go is Pearl Paint in Manhattan. The store actually has a craft shop behind the main store- ask for directions, and you'll be up to your neck in googly eyes.

    Thank you! I keep encountering the strangest problem in NY, I can only find high end goods! (like when I went in search of kiddie print polar fleece and kept finding Donna Karan fleece for $20 a yd). I know that eventually I will come across it (my 9th stop in the fabric district), but sometimes I just want to be lazy and ask. Especially since I know you ladies will have the answers.
    (athena, thank you very much for your offer, but I am working 10am-2am saturday and then flying out of town sunday so I am going to try one of the stors early saturday morning).
