Ribbon Factory Hagertown MD

At the ceramic studio we were discussing needing ribbon or cords for our upcoming Wizarding Festival. Someone mentioned the Ribbon Factory and I had never heard of the place even though it’s only one town over. I decided I needed to go and check it out, and what a treasure trove!
When we pulled up there was a tent out front with ribbon 10 for $1! (The lady inside said they’ll actually keep this tent sale going all Summer)

The 10 for $1 ribbon while mostly plain, most of them had over 150 yards of ribbon per spool. An amazing deal for the type of ribbon.

Inside was bigger then I expected! I found ribbon cording that was perfect for our frog project at $2.99 a roll, but they also had all kinds of other fun things to look at.


The day I visited they were also offering an additional 25% off your total if you spent at least $8. I’ll be back for sure, and highly recommend checking them out if you are in the Hagerstown MD area.

Weekend Adventures






Last weekend Molly and I took a little day-trip to Cumberland MD. Our friend Jessee had posted a photo on instagram of some cake toppers she bought at a little craft supply shop in Cumberland. We decided to go and see what we could find, and maybe check out some antique shops in the area. Molly had been to the crafty supply shop before and remembered that a Hallmark in the same shopping plaza had cake toppers too.
First we went to Plaza Crafts and spent way too much time sifting through the bins. There is no order to anything, its such a hodge podge. Then the gal had to count everything to ring us up, and then we ventured over to the Hallmark…where we hit the mother load.
We knew we wanted to just buy them all, since they were beautiful old stock cake toppers. The bins were all different prices ranging from 10-18¢ per topper (at Plaza Crafts they were just 10¢ each) So we took the bins to the front and waited while the sales lady finished up with customers and then told her we would like to buy them all, and instead of counting them if she could give us a flat price. She told us to make an offer and we froze up, not quite sure what to say. Finally I blurted out $30 and the lady said “SOLD!” right away.
Once we got back to my house we sat sorting all the toppers and splitting them up. Molly is going to make all sorts of awesome things for her shop, and plan of using mine for cakes & future crafternoons. In the end we ended up with over 800 cake toppers and about 20 spent each) I’ve not run across a lot of old stock items so it was quite the thrill!
