Ribbons, Buttons, and Trim

I love places like this. One of a kind places. They are small, have unique items and lots of personality. Service is great. They usually have a passion for their product, and give knowledgeable tips in using their product.
Sorry about the reflection the window. I wanted
you to see what kind of place this is.
The Button Emporium & Ribbonry
is amazing! I think I could spend all day looking at everything. It's a long drive from my home,
so it's a treat when I get to go. I can't think of what they don't have. From all the usual to the
one of a kind vintage.

So much eye candy!


There are racks and racks of different kinds of trim. Here are a few beaded trims.

They have examples of what you can do with ribbon, like make many different kinds of flowers. I'd love to see these in my garden.


And more.

This case is full of vintage.

They have feathers, braids, and buckles.
This Is the back of a vintage dress. Why didn't I take a picture of the whole dress? I don't know....I was so amazed at the crocheted button cover, and the handmade pin tucks. They are so perfect!

Then the buttons. The many, many buttons. Every shape and size.
I know I sound like an ad for this place, but The Ribbon Emporium is truly amazing, go visit.

I love all the trims, braids and ribbons. It is the finishing touches that make something your own. I want to learn how to make ribbon flowers. They make beautiful pins.

Hi, Debbie - I came here from Daisy Cottage and found that you are a near neighbor. I'm in Canby. Button Emporium is one of my all-time favorite places to visit. I could spend hours and hours in there (and dollars and dollars!). I'll be back again to visit you and see what you have to share. ~Adrienne~
