Wine stemware on Bowery: restaurant supply stores?

Before venturing down there, are any posters familiar with the quality and prices of stemware available retail on the Bowery?

*********
For reference, I've preferred and have Riedel (Vinum) and Spiegelau (vinovino) but now in odd numbers from good time breakage over the years.

I am looking to buy some more of the same or start over with 6, 8, 10 packs of large format red, white and sparkling's. $10-15 per stem I guess?

Many thanks

    I went to the place 1 storefront south of the SE corner of rivington and bowery. Had a pretty good selection. No riedel, but spiegelau stuff for sure. You have to buy in "case size" which for the japanese spiegelau ripoff glasses i bought was 24 glasses. My glasses were $5, the spiegelaus were 9.

      I have never seen Riedels or Spiegelau in any Bowery supply store. However, I have noticed that 67 Wines and Liquors has very competitive prices on Riedel vinum sets. You have to go there--the website doesn't have much information.

        I'm a wino and love good crystal, cheap enough that I won't cry if it breaks. You're unlikely to find anything in that category on the Bowery. I've gotten much better prices on-line than you'd find at 67 Wines (e.g. Amazon, Cooking.com., etc). As for stores, Century 21 is hit and miss, but you might find good after-Xmas sales at Sur La Table, and be sure to check Zabar's.

          Yes. Or buy Riedel at Bed, Bath & Beyond using one of the 20% off coupons. I wouldn't buy any brand-name stemware from anywhere on the Bowery, because I'd question the authenticity.

            Or Macy's with a coupon. They have Riedl "value packs" for some shapes.
