Where To Buy Hair Bow Supplies?

Published in How-To Articles

There are quite a few places you can buy hair bow supplies from. They can be divided into 2 categories: low volume and high volume. And they can be local or online.

If you run a business making hair bows for sale, then buying them in high volume obviously makes sense. The best high volume deals are usually found online.

Local supplies on the other hand are good if you want to purchase supplies straight away.

Ribbon Supplies

Low volume ribbon

Online sources

  • bagsandbowsonline.com: My #1 recommended source to buy ribbons due to ther highest quality and lowest prices. Use this link http://www.hairbowmommies.com/go/bagsandbows for a 15% discount on their huge selection of ribbons.
  • ribbonretreat.com
  • ribbonandbowsohmy.com
  • theribbonspot.com
  • ribbonqueen.com
  • hairbowcenter.com
  • Ebay and Etsy have great deals from sellers too. You can also find ribbon grab bags on these 2 sites. The drawback however is that some sellers ship from China and it may take weeks for supplies to reach you.

Your local stores

  • Joann Fabrics
  • Michaels’ Arts and Crafts
  • Hobby Lobby

Be sure to check their websites for coupons, as you can usually find 40% – 50% off coupons for items of your choice. Another tip is to register for the mailing list when you are at the store, and coupons will be sent directly to your email inbox instead of you having to search for them online.

I suggest you stay away from Hobby Lobby’s solid colored ribbon range. They are thin and has a waxy texture, making it difficult to make great hair bows with. Other than that, Hobby Lobby is a good place to shop for ribbon on spools, and they have frequent 50% off sales almost every 2 weeks.

Grocery stores like Walmart and Meijers carry ribbons too in their craft section, so look into them too.

High volume ribbon

Online sources

  • bagsandbowsonline.com: My #1 recommended source to buy ribbons due to ther highest quality and lowest prices. Use this link http://www.hairbowmommies.com/go/bagsandbows for a 15% discount on their huge selection of ribbons.
  • unitedcraftus.com: Great prices, but not very user friendly order process. You need to call them or fax to them to place an order.
  • ribbonretreat.com
  • ribbonandbowsohmy.com
  • hairbowcenter.com

Your local stores

It can be hard buying high volume ribbons locally. But if you live in a big US city such as Dallas, Los Angeles, New York etc.) or in the same city as a ribbon factory (Schiff, Offray, Venus Ribbon etc.), then you are in luck as you can get ribbons from these ‘local’ stores.

Your local stores

Here’s where to purchase the same supplies locally…

Hardware

Pinch/ Alligator clips: Buy them from your local beauty supply store. Sally Beauty Supply is a great choice. Look for the 100 count box which costs around $ 5.50. They also sell a small package of 10 clips for $ 2.20.

French Clips/headbands

Major craft stores like Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Joanns, etc.

Fabric Stiffener

Your local fabric store will almost certainly have this in stock. General craft stores such as Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, etc. will vary by location, so make sure to call them ahead as there is no guarantee with these stores.

The most common fabric stiffener brands are Aelene’s Stiffen Quick, Crafter’s Pick Stiffener and Stiffy Fabric Stiffener.

Crochet thread

You can get this from almost any craft store. My first choice is Joann’s, Michaels and Hobby Lobby.
