New Beginning...

Wow, December has sure flown by! We are very fortunate for all of our customers, friends and family here at The Lace Place. I hope you all had a great holiday and are looking forward to the New Year.

Here are some things to look forward to in our store. Ostrich feathers are BIG!! We already have a variety of colors and are planning on getting in more. They are great on clips, pins, etc. It will be fun to be including them in your custom bow orders! They are also on sale individually.

We can't wait to expand our selection of silk ribbons! The widths, colors, etc. Look forward to this in the next couple of months.

As always, we are sure to keep you updated in the latest colors, textures and styles!

There is so much more, we will keep you updated as we receive things in.

Here is to a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year!!

Sincerely,
The Lace Place

Babybands...Measurements

We get asked ALL the time, how much stretch do you need for a baby's head.
After doing so many baby bands, I think we have definitely got it down:)

For a newborn take take home bow 12 inches.. Remember, this is to match that take home outfit which won't last very long, but it is a keepsake since this is what she is wearing for when she does come home!

0-3 months 14 inches .. This will be a little big at first, but they will be growing so fast, you will get some use out of them.

3-15 months 15 inches..
2-4 years  16 inches
tweens, teens, and older sizes will vary, however 16 1/2 to 17 inches are a good estimate

These are only guidelines for most of the stretch we carry. On our grosgrain stretch (which is on sale for 99 cents/yard) I always like to recommend a little longer than what is listed, due to the fact it has a tighter stretch than our laces and european stretch.

I hope this helps!

Inspiring People....

I love working on Saturdays. I really do, we tend to have mostly new customers, brides, mother and daughters,  and couples coming in that can't really make in during the week.  The reason why I like to work these days is it gives me a chance to meet new people and to hear about what their needs are, what is going on in their life, etc.it is quite interesting, sometimes I feel like the show CHEERS...but in a ribbon sort of way :)

For instance, today, a couple came in that have four boys, and are getting ready to adopt a baby girl from the Ukraine.  What is interesting and inspiring about them is that one of their sons have down syndrome along with other medical complications, and the baby they are adopting from the Ukraine also has down syndrome. What I really loved about them, is that in addition of their responsibility of raising their family, they are also giving back.
They make blankets and send them all over the world for children in need. How wonderful is that?
Click on their link and ready their story.....Now do you know why I love the people that come in here?

What we have been working on....

The past few weeks we have been working on our silk ribbon "flowers". These have been a lot of fun to make, they are very easy for our customers to make on their own with the 1 1/2 inch silk ribbon we have.
Or, if you find that you don't really want to make them yourself, we sell the hand dyed ribbon silks for $7.00 on a clippie. Not a bad deal, since the hand-dyed ribbon 1 1/2 inch strands sell $5.00 a piece.
These have been great for our customers, they LOVE them! I have heard they are similar, not even as good as  quality, as what other stores sell  (from what we have heard from our customers), and of course, at a much lower price.

Yes, it is that time of year...

It is that time of year when we are getting ready for the Park City Silly Market. The market doesn't happen until June, but we are busy getting things ready, we will be showing some new hair flair, which when you come into our store, you will be getting a glimpse of our new products. Hopefully,  we will be posting pictures  soon. I hope you get a chance to come to the market, or any of the farmer's market that happen during the summer. There are a LOT of local vendors who have great items they are selling. Did you know that 45% of the money spent on a locally bought item stays in your community vs. only 9% from a chain store?  Also, there are many local vendors that support our schools, and community. It is such an important act to support all the small locally owned vendors in your area, and what a better way to get introduced to them than through a Farmer's Market? Find out more information at www.localfirst.org

I will post dates and also a promotion about when we will be up there, but, yes, on these wind blowing, cooler spring days, that is what were are up to .....getting ready for market.

Brown Lace!! Finally!

Yes, we are The Lace Place, however we are more of a ribbon store than lace. People ask us all the time, why ARE we The Lace Place, when there is more ribbon than lace? When this store started in the mid-eighties, they sold lace, lots of it! When it changed hands, in the mid nineties, there was still lots of lace, however, ribbon was becoming more and more popular! When I opened this store, GULP! almost 5 years ago, ribbon, was it! Sure, few people still wanted Lace, but really, stretch lace (which we are the ONLY store in Utah, and possibly the midwest, who sales stretch, by the yard.) We have focused on providing, exceptional ribbon and and stretch, to our customers, at a very reasonable cost.
Lately, though, there has been a sudden increase in lace trims, maybe because, many of the stores that use to carry laces are now gone. We have widen our selection of laces. Eyelet is available, flat or gathered. We have an array of colored one inch nylon laces, red, pink, yellow, black, blue.  We also carry ruffled sheer, white, ivory, pink and blue.  Come in, you will be surprised at what you will find.
The most difficult to find and most requested lace that has been requested since I have opened this store is brown lace. Yes, we see brown lace on clothing, but for it to be available to the consumer by the yard has been nearly impossible to find. We are very excited to offer 11/2 inch polyester flat cluney lace in chocolate brown.  It is a start, we hope you enjoy it. We do plan on expanding the selection when it becomes available.  As you can see, it is also available in black and chartreuse.
 Please keep in mind that our quest in finding the right products to  fit your needs are always on our mind when ordering. That is why we love our intimate relationship with our customers. We know your needs, and we will always try to fulfill them.

EFFECTIVE APRIL 1st

Effective April 1st, we will be selling our ribbon in 1/2 and full yard increments ONLY!
We have had a problem with our inventory selling in the increments we have been and have made the decision that all ribbon will be sold in 1/2 yard and full yard increments only. This will be a better way to serve all of our customers needing ribbon with out falling, just barely short of what they need. Which is something we have seen over and over again in our store.  
Please bear with us, as this will take some getting use to, but over time this will benefit all of you as well. 

Thank you.
