• Superhero supply company New york
  • The Superhero Supply Company may carry masks and tights, but don't call it a costume shop. As New York City's premier outlet for anti-gravity, truth serum, periscope binoculars and wall-climbing suction cups, the volunteer staff takes their work very seriously—even requiring all customers to recite the Vow of Heroism, in which one pledges to use their purchases for good, not evil. "That's how we weed out the super villains," said Scott Seeley… More info

  • Halloween adventure store New york
  • At Halloween Adventure, dressing in costume is more than just child’s play, and it's not just for Halloween either. Open year-round, this Greenwich Village costume superstore stocks everything from classic flapper gear to a get-up aptly named “Buggin’ Out”: a reversible ladybug/bee ensemble for the indecisive among us (appropriately patterned press-on nails available). Tony, who’s been managing the location for 15 years, tells us they have… More info

  • Abracadabra New york
  • Abracadabra isn’t your average costume shop that surges with the fall season. Its been in business for more than 25 years, and though Halloween is certainly Abracadabra’s busiest time of year, it is hard to imagine a more interesting or varied selection of hard-to-find costumes, props, lighting supplies, make-up and more. Abracadabra caters to an international clientele, and with its location in New York City’s Flatiron District, attracts a wide… More info

  • Paper presentation New york
  • Paper Presentation is a family-run business with a fascinating history. It was established in 1992 by a Persian family which had fled Iran to escape political persecution and was intended to simply be a way “to survive” in New York City. But this former stationary store has grown to become an incredible supplier of all-things-paper and now occupies an equally incredible block-wide space in the Flatiron District. In terms of stationery, Paper… More info

  • A cook's companion New york
  • Jennifer Baron is exactly how you’d imagine a Wisconsin native and kitchenware store owner to be. That is, friendly, knowledgeable, loquacious, and perhaps above all, practical. Except Baron’s store is located in Brooklyn Heights. She told us that the idea for A Cook’s Companion was sparked in the 1990s when she had to take the subway into Manhattan just to get a spring-form pan. To solve that dilemma, she opened A Cook’s Companion in 1997 and… More info

  • Cake supply New york
  • N.Y. Cake Baking Distributor is a museum of baking supplies, catering to everyone from amateurs to seasoned professionals. Joan Mansour, an award-winning cake decorator and instructor, opened the store more than two decades ago (at the time known as the Chocolate Gallery; it has since shifted its focus more toward baking). Now Mansour’s daughters, Jenny and Lisa, run the show, and have expanded the business successfully enough to open a West… More info
