Hello NYC crafters,
I'm looking for a store where I can find ephemera, such as vintage magazines, books, etc, to use in my visual/altered art. I already go to the Strand and look through their "art paper" section upstairs, but are there any other thrift or book stores anyone can reccomend in New York? Preferably Manhattan, but if there is anything worth mentioning, please let me know.
Thanks so much!
Jaime Grin

The mother lode is 23rd St. at 3rd Avenue.  Salvation Army, Goodwill, and (on the ritzier side) New York Opera thrift shop are on 23rd St. (south side of the street; they're side by side just east of 3rd avenue).  Housing Works Thrift Shop is just west of 3rd Ave. between the Duane Reade and the Madison Square post office.  On 3rd just north of 22nd is the somewhat ritzy Vintage Thrift Shop, which, believe it or not, has been proclaimed "the best thrift shop in New York" by the Zagat Guide, the same outfit that rates restaurants.  Honestly!  Who rates thrift shops?

There's also a Goodwill (maybe it's Salvation Army) at Broadway and 12th-ish (west side of Broadway).
