MJ Trimmings: a Unique New York City Shop

Sharing is caring!

Living in New York City, I come across a lot of unique shops you won’t find anywhere else. MJ Trimmings is one of those one-of-a-kind shops I’d randomly came across while walking down 6th  Avenue, as the vivid window displays drew me.

Only later with a little googling did I learn that MJ Trimmings has a long history in New York City, its first iteration dating back to 1936, growing into one of the largest trimming distributors in the United States.  What exactly are “trimmings”?

Think of it as all of the fun stuff for your project– lace, ribbons, braids, buttons, appliques, pom poms, spikes and studs, feathers, flowers, buckles, tassels, sequins and rhinestones. If you can dream of it chances are good they have it here.

Even if you aren’t into crafts the store is a visionary delight to walk through (those spools of ribbon!). I came out with some pretty ribbons (how could I not) that I use to top off my souvenir gift packages.
