Good Questions: Source for Reupholstery Trim and Piping?

This couch was an early reupholstery project of mine, bought in a fever of excitement — before I'd found a permanent apartment — when I saw it on craigslist for $50! One paint job and a fun fabric update later, I proudly hauled it to my apartment: and promptly realized that it is much too large for the space. I tried every possible rearrangement to keep the piece, but eventually I had to come to terms with the fact that I need to sell this sofa and get something smaller...

What I'm looking for now is a good source for reupholstery trim and piping. I spent a lot of time and thought on this, and I would love to finish it with something a little over the top (like two and a half inch wide turquoise trim...) I haven't been to Freddie Farkel's just because I don't have a car and it's hard to catch them when they're open, although I'd love to know if they're worth the trip. Online sources with a good selection would also be appreciated. I've had this thing in my apartment knowing I'd have to get rid of it since late December; now I've started the Cure and am excited to get it done and let it go! Thanks, Adwoa
