One of my favorite places to shop around this area is the Berwick Offray Ribbon Outlet. And when I say outlet I mean this is a real outlet with real outlet prices! Just before the snowfall I made a trip in to see what the latest a greatest was. When you step foot in this place you never know what you may find or how many bags you will schlep out with. I personally bought 3 stuffed grocery bags of ribbon $1 each, 3 pirates hat $.39, and 2 parrots $.50 each (I know kids).

Only sixty-five miles north of Washington it’s one of the nation’s biggest ribbon factories. The operation came to Hagerstown in 1922, begun by a family with experience in ribbonmaking dating to 19th-century France. I’m telling you, you can find bins and boxes overflowing with discontinued styles, overstocks and seconds: ice blue with brown polka dots, violet double-faced satins, grosgrains, taffetas and woven plaids, some for as little as 25 cents a yard or 10 cents a roll.
