...craft yourself happy with ribbons and pretties!

  • Ribbon and Wine Bottles

    Last week a customer stopped by to browse through our store and purchase some ribbon.  While most of our customers use our grosgrain and satin ribbon for hair bows, there are endless other craft projects that utilize ribbon.  It is always fascinating to discover the raw talent of so many of our customers and the things they are able to create with our large variety of craft products.

    Nancy Ann Smith with Sweet Peas Creations has been using ribbon in various ways.  She specializes in glass etching and decorating creative lighted crafts made out of recycled wine bottles.

  • Hang Wall-Art with Ribbon!

    Finished Wall Art


    What a fun way to dress-up your wall art!

    Using grosgrain ribbon to "hang" your artwork adds instant character to any space! As grosgrain ribbon is available in a wide range of colors, widths, and print patterns, virtually any style of wall art can be used. This hanging method is very striking when used for picture groupings, especially if they are all in a straight row. It's also a lot of fun to select funky coordinating ribbons to hang children's framed pictures.

    We had our official Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting ceremony this morning!

    The saying is that "man cannot live on bread alone", but apparently man can live on coffee alone!

    We could not keep up with the coffee intake and have almost all of our biscuits and gravy left!

    So, if anybody is in the area and has a hankering for some good old home-made biscuits and gravy, stop in!

    The korker hair-bows are geared more towards the little ones, but the rhinestone "bling" bobby pins can be seen worn around HairBow Center nearly every day by at least one of us.
