Wrights (as has already been mentioned.)

Thrift stores.

Yard sales---especially if you find any kind of crafty items, then ASK if they have laces ribbons trims. Often you can score big by asking when you need a specific something you don't see.

Also, ask friends who sew/craft to save you bits & pieces.
Look for home businesses or upholsterers who might have scrap they'd be glad to get rid of.

Check out rummage sales on bag sale days---lots of neat trims just crying out to be liberated from clothing! Wink

What about swaps with others who don't use much ribbon?  If everyone bought a single spool, it could be divvied up.

This place is a good source for bags of ribbon and other craft assortments like lace, beads, tassels, trims, elastic, bows, buttons, etc. http://homesew.com/

This is the link for the ribbon: http://www.homesew.com/sc/productsearch.cgi

I don't know if you have them where you live, but I live in a town of only 80,000 people and we have a store called liquidation world. They sell anything and everything, usually items from bankruptcies or insurance claims.

I have found lots of ribbon there, often 2"X3yrds.  some of it velvet. the last bunch was .65 cents ea.  The same spool is 4.99 at Micheals here in Canada.  Also dollar stores have fairly nice ribbon at times....

Since you are in Baltimore, I will mention that Offray has an outlet in Hagerstown.  They have a scrap box where you can fill a bag for like 1$.  So if you feel like a road trip that is a great start. their baragins are to die for!
