Not food related…unless you count the fact that I was at Tinsel Trading Company looking for ribbon to wrap boxes of kiwi tarts. It was my first time at this Midtown shop and I was completely taken aback (in the best way possible) by the sheer volume and quantity of ribbons and all sorts of shiny gems.
It’s a literal library of ribbons in every color, size and texture fathomable. There’s a special section devoted to gold ribbons. Could this be the happiest store in NYC?
Goodness, they even carry a rainbow of ribbons for hats. If it wasn’t for my afternoon appointment I would have surely whittled away hours in this cave. All the color and beautiful things you never knew you needed. It’s almost blinding.
