Duck…Duck…Tape!

Store window of Duck Tape pop-up store in Midtown Manhattan

Calling all NYC area crafters! Just when you thought there couldn’t be any more colors (or patterns!) for duct tape, there is now an entire pop-up store in Midtown Manhattan devoted to all things duct tape. Located at 1411 Broadway (between 39th & 40th St), this roughly 1,000 square foot space houses every conceivable Duck Tape color and design – from gorgeous emerald to mustache print.

Look at all these patterns!

Also, some of the dresses are on display from this season’s “Project Runway” prom dress/Duck Tape challenge.

This is what I scored:

Ooh…pretty, right?

Now what to make? I’m thinking luggage tags– Crafty Soccer Mom has a great tutorial.

If you’re looking for some fun crafts to make (besides a wallet!) with your new wide assortment of duct tape, below is a list of ideas:

The store is open through Sunday, April 28 and the hours are Monday-Friday 11-7, Saturday from 10-6 and Sunday from 10-5. Also, 10% of their proceeds are going to the charity, Autism Speaks.
