Continuing on our Maker tour of NYC… Canal street, NYC is an interesting place – you’d think there would only be room for one acrylic / lasering plastic store, nope! There’s two in eye-sight of each other. Our next stop for sheets of acrylic, plastics, plexi-glass, lucite and vinyl and more was T&T Plastic Land, one block away from another plastics store.
Previous we stopped in Canal street plastics, I’d say the selection is about the same – as are the prices, Canal street plastics seems to stock more in the customer areas to check out while T&T seems to be more business to business oriented. T&T did have a bin of scrap acrylic and that’s pretty much the reason I stop in when I pass the store – always something good/cheap to test out or use for a project. Also, their tiny cubes are cheaper than Canal street plastics for those who are cost sensitive when buying acrylic cubes, more photos.
