Default I was in ribbon heaven today!

I found a wholesale ribbon store about 3 towns away from me! Never knew it was there and stumbled upon it quite by accident! (I had to get replacement tubing for the nebulizer treatments that DS and now DD are both on and I was forced to make a turn in order for an ambulance to go by. So I pulled into this shopping center that I have driven past gazillions of times and never paid any attention to what was in there - and saw a sign for Cottage Lace & Ribbon. I went in and WOW! I was a kid in a candy store!!!

25 yds of 6" tulle $2.50 each
7/8" organdy ribbon 25 yds $4.00
1/5" polka dot grosgrain 25 yds $10
7/8" reversibel grosgrain dots 10 yds $8
3/8" grosgrain solid 100 yds $10
7/8" grosgrain solid 50yds $8
5/8" grosgrain solid 50yds $7
3/8" grosgrain swiss dots 50 yds $10
1.5" polka dot grosgrain 25 yds $10
7/8" woven edge stripe 10yds $8
1.5" multistripe grosgrain 25 yds $15

most if not all of it was offray too - some of it I couldnt tell bc there was no name on the color sticker - others have the offray spool attached and some I matched to others with the offray spool but didn't buy the 100yds or more.

They also have the organza bags that I'm thinking about using and selling pairs of clippies or a bow as party favors. It was 10 for $7 so I need to figure out if that is a good price.

One thing I saw that I was interested in but need to find more details about is that they print ribbon. It may be something I would be interested in for the future.

Oh and after my detour, I did get the replacement tubing for the nebulizer! Don't worry - I was back in plenty of time to give DD her treatment!

haha! We know you're a good mom!

I wonder if, now that you are an LLC do you have a tax ID? Maybe you would get a discount there!

Cool! Where is that store?

You know, we need to have a sticky thread somewhere with all the ribbon wholesale shops listed in it. I wonder if there are any here in H-town, we seem to have everything else but I've never heard of one.

Yay for new ribbon!

What a neat find! On a side note, do both of your children have asthma? Just wondering b/c you mentioned the nebulizer.

She asked if I had a tax id card - I said not yet bc I was waiting for the LLC stuff to go through first. Next time I will bring it and hopefully get a discount!

No they don't have asthma - they have bronchiolitis caused by the Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV).

It's in Neptune, NJ - their business card doesn't list a website

Oh, man! I would soooo be spending some serious money there! It would be so nice to actually see colors and whole spools, too.

You really did stumble on to something good!!!

RE: Houston...there's got to be something there. You'd think anyhow... I'm only 90 miles away, so let me know if you find something.
