Vintage Christmas Ribbons

vintage ribbonsHere are some vintage Christmas ribbons I picked up at the thrift store. I love them, and can’t wait to tie up some Christmas packages with them. Whenever I can I like to try to find what I need at the thrift store instead of purchasing something new. Most of the time I can find what I’m looking for and it gives me great joy to be able to use something that someone else was unable to find a use for anymore. This is the perfect example, instead of buying new ribbons which have no character at all, these are beautiful and will hopefully give the recipient pleasure beyond just opening the gift.

    Wow they are gorgeous! You have set me a challenge now – I am off charity shop shopping with my friend tomorrow (a replacement day for the one when my little one got sick!) I hope I manage to find something half as nice as those ribbons – they look perfect with your snowflake too šŸ™‚
