Gold Foil Etchings
« on: February 13, 2017, 04:25:07 PM »
When I was in Mea Shearim last month there were many stores selling gold foil etchings like the one attached to this post.

I saw them in many designs but have not seen anything like this in NY or even for sale online.

If you have seen this for sale please let me know. The alternative is to ask someone to bring this back in checked luggage and I dont want to add weight.

They used to have a store in Brooklyn. I'm not sure if it's still around.

Yes, that is the company.

If anyone has seen these in Brooklyn or anywhere else in the NYC area please chime in.

I haven't been there in awhile but they had a store in 46th and 13th. Maybe check if that's still open.

I stopped in there today and yes they are still open. Very nice selection, but prices are considerably higher than Mea Shearim (about 35% more).

+1 They're way more expensive.
