Ribbon Bargains !!!!!!!

LOOK at my haul !!!!!!!!

Aren't the colors gorgeous !!!!!!!

The other day I was in a local grocery store that has a floral department , I was told later they were closing that dept .

I was shopping and walking around,I was nearly finished picking up the items on my list, and I spotted a shelf full of reduced articles, I could see ribbon in there, so I walked over and I HIT THE JACKPOT!!!!!!

The spools were reduced to 99 cents, 50 cents 25 cents and 10 cents!!!!!!!!
NO KIDDING!!!!!!!!!!

I was beside myself I was so happy,took me maybe 3 seconds to scoop all the ribbon up into my cart before someone else saw this steal of a deal.

Its all Offray ribbon, all kinds of colors.Half of them were FULL spools those were the big ticket items at a buck each !!!!~~~~~~~((YEAH I KNOW))

Offray ribbon is anywhere from a buck a yard to many bucks a yard, each of these full rolls has~~~~~~~ 100 yards.~~~~~~That dear ladies is a penny a yard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was over the moon happy!!
I don't know what I will do with my haul of ribbon but I am just thrilled, I LOVE RIBBON!!
I have a huge and I am talking huge box of ribbon already bursting with goodness and prettyness, now I feel ribbon rich!!!!

Does anyone know of ribbon crafts ???

My DIL makes bows for her girls hair with ribbons, a glue gun, and little hair clips. I use ribbon when I make cards sometimes. Boy you found a GREAT bargain!

I love ribbon also. Several years ago, I did almost the same thing. A florist was going out of business, and she sold me a huge box of ribbon for $5.00! I didn't even know what was in it, and of course, I still have a lot of it. But I do enjoy having such a selection when I need some ribbon for something. laurie

BetteJo said...

You make me want to buy RIBBON!!!! But I don't have a clue what I would do with it. But oh my gosh - enjoy your haul!

Needled Mom said...

That is definitely "the jackpot."

PEA said...

Oh wow, you certainly did hit the jackpot with that ribbon! I can just picture your face when you saw it all and the price they were! hehe Love all the colours. xoxo

Smilingsal said...

Oh stand back! She's going to do some serious crafting! I can't wait to see what you do.

tipper said...

How lucky are you! Congrats on the ribbon.

I have found that ribbon is always pretty on display. So if you're deep in a snow storm (not much imagining there, huh?), stick them in a pretty basket where you can just enjoy the color!

Jo said...

I get so excited when someone I know gets a great deal, You would think I was the one that got the deal f all deals. I would say that you found the pot of gold with that deal.

I love the new quilt you have started. I am anxious to see the finished product.

What a fantastic find.First time to visit your blog. Ribbon is something that I buy whenever I find it. Here where I live we are very limited as to where we can get ribbon. Our Walmart took the fabric department out.Our other sewing store closed.Please stop by.
Have A great weekend

Hi Diane,
Wow, what a great deal on ribbons! I must confess that I am a ribbonaholic too :) I've never found a great bargain like this though!

tardevil said...

Confessing that I, too, am a ribbonaholic! I bought 4 rolls 2 days ago at Michael's on clearance for a quarter a piece. Check them out too! :O) said...

Isn't it great to find something you like for just a DIME??

Mountain Mama said...

I used to make ribbon roses and a bargain like that would have made me delighted too.
I'm sure you will have a great time with it.

Nola @ the Alamo said...

Just display them... Run a tension rod through the spool and put it up somewhere that needs a splash of color. Then you can enjoy them all the time!
