Hi there. I just stumbled across this site as I was trying to find a stores that sells ribbons in New York City (not the outer boroughs). I am looking to have sheer organza ribbons on the tables for my wedding and am actually having a tough time finding a store in NYC (if you can believe!). Any suggestions? Thanks!

MJ Trimmings has an entire store devoted to ribbons. It's on 6th Avenue around 37th St.

There's also some great bead stores right around that area as well!!

You might want to try ebay as well.

kate's paperie (broadway/prince and 13th btw 5th and 6th) has a beautiful selection.  i don't know how much you need - they are a little on the pricey side - but they carry very unusual and beautiful ribbons that i have yet to see anyplace else.

mj trim has great selection but is soooo pricey.  

my favorite trim store is Daytona Trim on 39th between 7th and 8th.  they have all sorts of ribbon, cord, braid, buttons, etc. and also embroidery floss, crochet thread, and yarn! and they are one of the few garment disctrict stores open on sun.  they definitely have lots of sheer ribbon, i bought some recently.

another ribbon store is "so good". i forget exactly where it is, i know it is between 5th and 6th ave and i think is on 38th street, but it might be 39th.
They carry only ribbon and like to sell in large quantities.

good luck!

I am so sad that K Trimmings closed. Does anyone know if they moved their inventory to another location? I really, really regret not buying more buttons when I had the chance. WAAAH!!!

On Broadway South of Canal there are about 3 or 4 fabric/trimmings stores on both sides of the street in the span of about 3 blocks. I've found some great, really cheap ribbon there. The stores are kind of chaotic, but it's fun...kind of like a treasure hunt. There is one in particular that I like. I can't remember the name, but it is on the East side of Broadway, about 2 blocks south of canal. It is a total mess, but tons of great finds! The last time I was there I bought this fantastic double sided satin ribbon for a sweater I was knitting and it was like 50 cents a yard. It's beautiful and would have been $5 a yard at Kate's for sure!

Have fun. Smiley

K Trimming closed?! Are you sure they weren't just closed for the holidays or something?
