The Ink Pad-Stamping Heaven in NYC

I found a wonderful stamp shop in the heart of NYC. The Ink Pad has more rubber stamps and fun stamping stuff that you can imagine in a teeny tiny place. I'm sure if you need a stamp they will have it.

Here is the website

I spent way too much $ but it was so worth it and so much fun. Thanks babe for humouring me today :)

Here are some pictures
