Ribbon Store

I am lucky to have a friend who runs www.ribbonstore.com that lives close by.  First off, Carole is a FOUNTAIN of information and knowledge.  Just walking through her “store” is enough to inspire anyone.  She has ideas planted throughout to show you what you can do with the ribbon.  And some of the ribbon – oh to die for.  Oh heck, ALL OF THE RIBBON is to die for, lol.

Do you see – Carole is always checking ribbon for “pull” capability.  Its amazing how many you can pull and it gathers itself!  Aren’t those great ribbons too?  I love ribbons that are gradations, give any project great movement.

Of course I shot these photos a long time ago – Carole has since rearranged the store since she has acquired some new antique store cabinets.  (New to her, but definitely antique!)    On the last shot above – don’t you love the heads?  Carole found those at TJMaxx I think – she just has ribbons dripping out like hair.  I think the heads were supposed to be plant holders.  And the cases below are antiques.  So nice to view the ribbons through.

Now – Carole really is an on-line store.  She sells mainly through ebay – at – http://stores.ebay.com/The-Ribbon-Store.

Having said that – if you are ever in Las Vegas its worth asking if you can visit this treasure.  And believe it or not – its her GARAGE.  Ok – so it has its own AC and its a SIX car deep garage, but it blows your mind when you walk through the door.
