You know, Ken Mac, I love these kinds of places but they drive me crazy 'causes there is so much junk I have a hard time finding what I want...

And your photo captures well the "junkiness" of it.

You NY'rs and your signage. Come in, come in, trust me, we have everything. And it's a supersale, for god sakes. Are you crazy? Don't just keep walking.

This is NOT the place for ADD folks like I think I am. I can't even focus on the outside and I'm 'skerd" about the inside!!!

I get my epson printer cartridges there, and paper.
I suggest striking up a conversation inside and getting a (nine was free) copy of the owner's self published book about coming to the USA and getting his first shop. It's rather interesting.
I love this place, Not at all scary inside, very organized actually.

It's just all of the lotto signs that are making you feel overwhelmed.

This looks like the perfect NYC stationary store. These places are just dandy once you get inside. It's ingenious how they pack in so much stuff and it remains logical.

Also, this respectable place is NOT to be confused with the sketchy places of which have PERMANENT signs that say "GOING OUT OF BUSINESS"....

This is the kind of place I can still find on my island. Sometimes to live in a timewarp can be an advantage.
