Where can I find sheet copper in New York today?

Metalliferous is closed on Saturday, and I need some 26-28 ga sheet copper asap. I need a piece that's at 12" x 15", but if all I can find is 12" x 12", I may try it. Where can I find it in New York?

Would a big hardware or Home Depot carry this as flashing for roofs?

Usually copper flashing is 16 ga. Home depot said on the phone that they didn't have any idea what I was talking about, but their salespeople are notoriously clueless.

Set your google maps to "sheet metal" and zoom in on Red Hook/Gowanus.

Actually, what you need to Google is "alloy sheet metal." I don't know precisely where in New York you're located, but this site might be a good starting place for your seach.

Thanks to Jon_Evil, I found it at Master Sheetmetals at 506 Smith Street, Brooklyn, NY‎, after calling about five other places that didn't pick up their phones.

Next, I need two live badgers by tomorrow night. The fate of the universe depends on it.

I don't think you're supposed to use AskMeFi to ask two questions. It may seem urgent right now, but I'm sure the universe can wait a week.
