Road Trip

I wish we had one of these closer to my house. MFTA is a reuse, recycle art supply warehouse in New York. They take materials for arts and crafts that people aren't using and resell them at a fraction of the cost. The Paint Room alone is enough to make my heart flutter.

Look at all of this yarn

I always hate to throw away craft supplies, left over fabric or ribbon. I think there has to be someone who can use it. This place would be a little slice of heaven for me.
The also have computers, office chairs, household items, picture frames and the list goes on an on and on.

Most people visit New York to go to a show or dinner or a fancy store. I think when I go I will want to go to MFTA first.

Emily! This place is about a mile from where I live! Its in an area of Queens called Long Island City. There are all these warehouses that have all different kinds of collections in them, like gigantic closets for shows (like gossip girl - not that I watch) filmed in the city. Hope James is healing. Love, Erin W
