Default Re: what to buy.. beginner

When I started out. I bought a ton of ribbon at Hobby Lobby and most of the time they have them on sale for 50%. They dont have them on sale this week. They usually have the ones by the roll on sale. The 5/8 is usually 1.99 for 15ft and the 7/8 is 3.99 for 15ft and that is not on sale. They also carry the barrette and alligator clips and you can get them on sale too most of the time.
I also like Michaels they ribbon bin. They usually have a huge bin with ribbon ranging from .29 to 1 and also ranging from 3yd to 10yd and 5ft to 15ft.

If I just want a small amount of something, I go to carriesshowcase on ebay. It is a good way to get a variety if you're only making bows for your daughter(s). She is one of the RABOM owner's sisters (or somehow related) & sells RABOM ribbon for cheap! She is super sweet & ships quickly.

Try hairbowcenter.com. They have great prices and pretty much everything you need, and you can buy in 5 yard increments. Shipping is really fast too! I'd just get a couple of your fav. colours in 3/8 (so you can line some clips), 7/8, and 1.5 inches. You can probably spend $10 or so and get a decent amount of ribbon for practicing with.

I am so glad you asked this question. I have a 3 month old with lots of hair and am wanting to start making her some clips.
