This tour was great for finding several out-of-the-way shops with wonderful merchandise that I never would have found on my own.

You’ll need to bring your own Metrocard, as you’ll be using the subway throughout the tour.
As you shop ’til you drop for the lush handpainted luxury yarns as well as the basics, you will visit:

- a fabulous bead shop
- the quintessential NYC trimming shop

Discounts are offered at several of the shops you visit! A map of the locations is provided to all participants. A snack is included. Recommended for visitors who want to experience New York from a different perspective.
