Build your own fleet of two-thirds scale tricycles and put sugar-cube national monuments to shame with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of crafts at your choice of Manhattan location of Little Shop of Crafts, on East 73rd Street or Amsterdam Avenue.

Its modest name notwithstanding, Little Shop (or Best Shop, to many) of Crafts has no studio fee and a huge selection of crafts to delight any age, from pottery ($19.95+) to plaster crafts ($13.95+) to beading and beyond. New York's Byzantine-emperor population will appreciate the range of mosaic selections ($21.95+), whereas Japanese kawaii cultists can Create-a-Cuddly so disgustingly adorable, it will bring the mightiest army to its knees.

If stuffed animals in custom 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 such as "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.

You may use this Groupon toward classes.

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.
