Just a quick entry to share my most recent score! I will randomly run through the listings on craigslist, just to see if there's anything interesting. I saw a listing for a "bag" of ribbons for $25. I had already been considering incorporating ribbon into my jewelry so I contact the seller and asked if they'd sell the ribbons for $20. She agree and I headed out pick up my purchase. Now keep in mind, when I read "bag" I thought maybe gallon size. But oh no! It was a garbage bag full of really really nice ribbon. The seller was a wedding planner and these were her left overs. She almost threw them out! Can you imagine!
I will soon have ribbon jewelry so keep an eye out!
Update: My first piece of jewelry made from this lot! The beads are from a huge estate auction I won in January so the entire necklace is upcycled!
