I love ribbon. Don't use it much, but it appeals to me, so I buy it "just because"!
Friday I was over at a local fabric/sewing shoppe called The Franklin Mill Store in Franklin, Mass. (next door, south of Medway). It's an awesome store in an old mill building that began in 1946. They still write out the sales slips by hand and use calculators - no computers!
Here is an interior shot of the store: (see the ribbon section in the background?)
And here is my little bag of goodies I came home with!
How about the size of that big red rick-rack? And, of course, on the bottom right is some cherries ribbon, and cherries buttons!
This is Fiske's General Store in Holliston, Mass. (next door, north of Medway). One of my all-time favorite places to go! As the sign says, they have "most everything". I buy LOTS of my ribbon there! They have everything from Webkins and Japanese erasers for the kids to a craft and decorating section for the moms, with a "penny" candy section just as you walk in the door.
The girls and I stopped in there after church this morning. I just had to buy one piece of ribbon!
I can't resist a bit of name-dropping - Holliston is also the hometown of Country singer JoDee Messina, and one of my brothers dated one of her sisters for many years!
So here's my whole kit 'n kaboodle, all stuffed into these boxes:
Maybe I should wallpaper a room with them - lol! Have a great week everyone!
