You've heard about this little slice of heaven from me before.  It is about half an hour away, thank goodness. So that means I visit the PA Fabric Outlet every couple months when I need something random or want inspiration.  Behold, the essence of creative inspiration...

We're talking the whole length of the wall of every kind of ribbon: lace, ric rac, stretch lace, satin, sequined, and beyond.

Randomness.  In bottles.

This antique, forgotten seam binding caught my eye.  Finding this fulfilled my coming here.  I needed something different and out of the box for a special project.

Every color of velvet ribbon.  What would you do with velvet ribbon of all colors??

The twins had a hay day.  Do I need to mention that the double stroller wouldn't make it up 12 steps at the store entrance?  They didn't know what to do first, pull ribbon off the shelves or jump on the squares of styrofoam.

Walls of every button you could ever dream of.  One of my favorite things to come here for is their unique clasps, metal belt pieces, and random sewing accessories.

So here's the stash I came home with. So inspiring.

Don't you love all of the guitar strap ribbon I found?

Definitely a Bobby-rolls-the-eyes buy.  Just wait, Bobby, you'll be blown away with what I can do with 40 yards of guitar strap ribbon...  Friends, any ideas???
