where to get large cork stoppers in Manhattan?
Not sure which board to post this question..so moderator please move as see fit.
I'm looking to buy a large cork stop (cork toppers are they called?) about 1.5 inch diameter for my glass water pitcher. The original soft rubber stopper is very hard to clean. I always find black substance in the crevices that doesn't come off even with a strong brush.
In Manhattan I've looked so far in Gracious Home, Bed, Bath & Beyond. No luck. I see one source online that may work, but would like to see them in person if possible.
Thanks all for your ideas! I forgot to mention that I did go to Zabars the first day. They had some glass jars with cork tops, but not the right size, nor sold separately. They couldn't tell me where to get just the tops.
Bowery Kitchen supply, Broadway Pan Handler, William Sonoma I have looked on their sites. Nothing there it seems. Though the web site for Bowery Kitchen doesn't have pictures, so maybe they do have it, just not showing.
Sur la Table had one item that seemed promising, but alas, also doesn't seem to sell the top separately.
I found a website of a place in Woodside that defintely have the ability to supply all and anything cork, but minimum order is $50.
Someone mentioned maybe an arts and craft store. I haven't look yet. My last resort would be to order online where there are no minimum. I think i saw one place that sells the size i want for $2 a piece.
