Florals for Craft Day


I know I should be ashamed of this, but sometimes I really miss the silly craft stores. Granted, the garment district is amazing and I'd take that over the rest any day, but sometimes I really need some soccer mom crafting supplies, and I've yet to find a store that covers all of those needs. Fabrics, trims, notions, art supplies - covered...general crafts, not so much. If you can think of any I should check out, please let me know. As of yesterday, I was unaware of such a place, so Bobby and I headed to Staten Island to hit up a regular old craft store. I knew I could depend on Staten Island to possess such a suburban staple. It's really odd how crossing the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge brings you into a totally different world.
