Plastic Ribbon

Once upon a time at Lulu's house we had this really cool plastic ribbon for putting bows outside. This was YEARS ago. I was in high school and had a red bow on the unused trailer hitch on my triked out Maxima. Tricked out meaning when my parents bought it it had EVERY option available from leather seats to sun roof and power everything. It was a sweet ride.

So the ribbon- it was Red Ribbon Week and tie a ribbon on your car time and mine was such nice plastic ribbon that it stayed fresh and nice from October through Valentines Day when the haggling of my friends caused me to finally cut it off. We have been looking for the same ribbon since without success... until the corner house of Chief and Lulu's neighborhood this year at Christmas used the ribbon to tie up their garage doors like a package.

Like any good obsessor, Lulu went over to see where the neighbors had secured the ribbon. No luck- they had saved it from the previous year and couldn't remember where they found it. Enter Saturday. Slick and I went to the International Gift Market in Dallas and happened upon the ribbon! And in a showroom where we will be opening an account! If you want some of the coolest plastic red red ribbon known to man (and woman) let me know and I can get you a bolt. I don't know the pricing yet, but it will certainly be worth every penny. This stuff is the best outdoor ribbon ever. It is perfect for using on mailboxes, lamp posts, mailboxes, car grills, columns and tree wrapping. So versatile, so long lasting, you'll wish the holidays lasted longer!

I don't know if you remember I was looking for that last year for Red Ribbon Week- since I am the cordinator for my school- I found some not as good but workable at a store- but I would love a new bolt of RED when you order it!! We might should get purple too...

I can just picture you driving around in your tricked out car with the sunroof open and that pretty red ribbon blowing in the breeze. :)
