Have you visited one of our fabulous sponsor sites lately? Ribbons and Bows Oh My! is a great site. I mean...they sell gorgeous ribbon and other similar items, what more do you need to know? Here is a little bit about the story of how this wonderful business got started.
The story of Ribbon and Bows Oh My! began in 2002, when company founder Jennifer Huinker bought $50 worth of denim grosgrain ribbon and sold it on Ebay, turning a small profit. A "stay-at-home" mom, Jennifer was interested in a business which would allow her the flexibility of operating from her home and keeping her own work schedule. Jennifer's husband and co-founder Paul ran a carpet cleaning business, but began to help Jennifer process and ship orders in the evenings. In February, 2003, the Huinkers officially formed their new company, selected the name "Ribbon and Bows Oh My!" (or RABOM) and began selling ribbon and related products on Ebay.
Initially operating from their kitchen table, Paul and Jennifer were able to increase the business and shortly moved into a 1500-sq ft building with five employees. Business growth really began to accelerate when RABOM went on line with a dedicated website in 2006. Recognizing the potential of RABOM, Paul sold the carpet business and committed full time to the ribbon trade.
I just love that story! And I also love the products. Look at this glitter ribbon. It comes in all sorts of lovely colors. Being the only girl in my house means I need a little sparkle from time to time.
