I've needed more obscure materials recently for a few wedding projects and have discovered that some of the best shops to find unique odds and ends are located in the Fashion District... in the heart (er, armpit) of Midtown. I’ve been venturing there on my lunch breaks in search of vintage ribbons, spools, trim. The sweet spots are along 37th and 38th streets, home to the shops Tinsel Trading Company, M&J Trimmings, Hyman Hendler, and B&J Fabrics. In addition to those, there are countless other great shops sandwiched in between to make the trip worthwhile.

I had hired the lovely Heather Heckel to screen print the Save the Date cards and couldn't be happier with the results. She did an amazing job, paying attention to every detail. For the return address I used SimonStamp.com to produce a custom rubber stamp. They are really reasonable and have an impressive turnaround time.
The invitation is still a work in progress, but I'm making some good headway. Stay tuned...
