Ribbons, We've Got 'em ... Vintage, Decorative, Fancy & More

Vintages offers a broad line of decorative paper, ribbon and art elements for crafters, artists and wrapping that special gift. Papers, ribbons and such is the realm of Susan, who at an early age found that she was enthralled with beautiful paper and ribbon. She still is, and that love of decorative ribbons and paper can be found in the wonderful selection of papers and ribbons in our shop.At Vintages we have what is probably the largest inventory of ribbons in the South Bay. Our ribbon selection includes new and vintage ribbons. The new ribbons include hand-dyed silks, satins, velvets, chiffon, ombres, grosgrain, wired and unwired solids, sheers and patterns in a multitude of colors. These come from numerous vendors some as far away as France.We have ribbons with messages and greetings (happy birthday, thank you, congratulations and more), a variety of Paris inspired designs (fleur d’lys, ooh la la, merci) and gorgeous florals. Many of these designs are perfect for craftwork.There are also ribbons in a rainbow of colors and a wide range of textures.

Susan not only seeks fine ribbons and paper from contemporary sources, but also searches and finds wonderful examples from eras past. The selection includes bright mid-century grosgrain, trim and velvet from the early 1900s, along with Victorian ribbons and trim. The vintage selection varies and is of course limited to stock on hand that changes frequently. At this time we have a variety of velvet, embroidered, metallics, seam bindings, grosgrain, satin, lace and more.
