Build your own fleet of two-thirds scale tricycles and put popsicle-stick national monuments to shame with today’s Groupon. For $15, you’ll get $30 worth of craft supplies at either Manhattan location of Little Shop of Crafts.

Its modest name notwithstanding, Little Shop (or Best Shop, to many) of Crafts has a huge selection of crafts and craft supplies to delight any age, from pottery ($19.95+) to plastercast ($13.95+) to beading and beyond. New York's Byzantine emperor population will appreciate the range of mosaic kits ($21.95+), while Japanese kawaii kultists can Create-a-Cuddly so disgustingly adorable, it will bring the mightiest army to its knees.

If stuffed animals in customized T-shirts don’t delight and enchant, you can come up with your own human-sized T-shirt design ($16.95) for any application. One-up your friends by touting bands that don't even exist, or taunt them with a variation on an old theme like "I'm With a Guy Who Cried During Wall-E." Avoid the embarrassment of wearing the same Edward Gorey silkscreen as everyone else at next summer's outdoor music festivals, or drive mere mortals mad with the world's most obscure joke, which science has proven to be Mr. Belvedere's head superimposed on the Mona Lisa with a word balloon proclaiming, "Everybody say YATTA!". The possibilities are endless. As you pleasantly ponder devious new shirt designs and unimagined craft coups, Little Shop will also be happy to lubricate your imagination with a little complimentary wine.

Little Shop of Crafts

Little Shop of Crafts may have "little" in its name, but the creative opportunities that the DIY art center offers are anything but. Bisque pottery pieces, such as mugs, sushi plates, and candle holders, await custom paints and glazes. Mermaids, planes, and other plastercraft figurines receive customized coats in a a variety of hues. The shop also stockpiles a massive collection of glass tiles that can be transformed into stunning mosaics in the form a flower or surrounding a picture frame. Fine arts classes for youngsters teach fundamentals such as composition and shading, and adult functions corral grownups together for team-building exercises or bridal showers that take a break from the usual throwing-the-bride-in-the-shower routine.
