The Ribbonerie

I was over in Laurel Heights the other day to get new tires for my Jeep when it struck me...isn't there a killer ribbon store over here somewhere? So, I pulled out my trusty iphone (which I have decided, I cannot live without) and looked it up, The Ribbonerie popped up so when the new rubber was ready to hit the road I headed over.
I knew from the window out front that what I was about to enter was something of a ribbon dreamland and it did not disappoint. The owner of the store was super helpful when I told her what I was looking for and let me take all the time I wanted to poke around. This shop has the most amazing antique fixtures, things that were specifically made for spools of ribbon and sewing goods. There is a wall of vintage millinery feathers, german velvet leaves and fruit and so many other goodies; it was a kaleidoscope of color for the eyes. I picked up a couple things for a class I am taking next weekend and was on my way, but you know what? I will be back for sure!
Here is a link to an article that was on apartment therapy in 2008.

That place leaves me breathless and is also one of the most dangerous stores out there for my change purse.

Glad you had fun! : )
