Ribbon Outlet Report!


The Offray ribbon outlet is located just beside the factory in Hagerstown, MD. It's about an hour and a half drive from Baltimore or DC and is so worth a trip! Leesa had mentioned the store to me a while ago and I decided to make the journey to ribbon heaven.

To say that I was a kid in a candy store is to put it mildly. There was ribbon stacked as far as the eye could see. Double sided satin, grosgrain, and velvet ribbons in all colors and sizes wrapped into huge wheels are a delight to the eyes. Literally, I didn't know where to start. So I began where any good pink and green girl would begin ~ with the grosgrain!


The prices for ribbon are an incredible bargain ranging from $1 to $10. The most expensive, largest roll of ribbon I saw was about the diameter of a pizza and cost $10! How gorgeous are these rolls of ribbon??


The prices on the ribbon are so reasonable because the colors are discontinued. There is also another section with "seconds" or slightly irregular ribbon at bargain prices. A huge grocery store bag of multiple shades of ribbon costs $1. Other bags about the size of a ziploc bag cost 25 cents!

For my peeps who like to make scrapbooks, there are many self-adhesive ribbons and other embellishments for paper, cards, and scrapbooks.

Here are my goodies!



Natalia and Alexia think that I should open a "bow business!"

During the fall, I'd love to return to the Offray outlet to stock up on some ribbon for Christmas. Let me know if you'd like to join me. It would be a fun girls' day out! Visit the Offray Ribbon Outlet at 857 Willow Circle in Hagerstown, Maryland.
