It was a beautiful day...

...for a RIBBON RUN!!! Saturday, my good friend, Kathi and I, along with my DH, rode our motorcycles up to Hagerstown, MD to the Offray Ribbon Outlet. The weather was gorgeous, the backroad scenery was beautiful and the ribbon outlet was overwhelming!!! After shopping at the outlet we ate lunch at Cracker Barrel- yumm-- and the sweet tea sure hit the spot! It was so hot and I was SO thirsty! On our ride home, the skies started looking a little ominous, and we managed to dodge MOST of the raindrops, but DH and I did get a little wet right as we were getting home. All-in-all, we had a great day!

Here's what I got:
Spools of assorted ribbons ranging in price from 10 cents each to $5.00 each. Many are perfect matches for SU colors- especially the Certainly Celery! I got one role of floral ribbon that Kathi says should match some of the new In-Colors...which I can't wait to see!
Quart-sized bags of assorted ribbons were only 35 cents each. You can't tell much by the pictures but I got lots of different colors- blue, white, silver/gray, pink, brown, celery, a good assortment for fall/Thanksgiving, plus some more of the 10 cent rolls.

They also had an assortment of embellishments- crocheted flowers, felt flowers, 'yo-yo' gingham flowers for 10 cents per pack and I got a large bag of black ribbon roses for 25 cents. There was SO much more that I would have loved to have gotten, but this will keep me busy for a while. They had very large bags of one kind of ribbon for $1.00 but for the most part, they were ugly! I was only buying ribbons I knew I liked and that I knew I would use. If you're ever in the Hagerstown area, make sure to stop and check it out!! It's definitely worth the trip!!
