I am pretty sure Target has them...I am going to get some from there and try it first...The Ribbon Retreat has them, but they are a little pricey IMO..
I think the streamers did go down the other end, I was thinking about that last night, I think it will be easy enough to do that way.
I don't remember mine having beads or anything, but it might be cute!
I really don't know if they are coming back in style..like I said, I saw them at Gymboree and thought they would. With all the 80s bright colors,etc coming back, I don't see why not!!!
