At the Ribbon Emporium, you’ll enjoy a step back in time upon entering Jo Ann’s nostalgic recreation of a turn of the century millinery shop … filled with beautiful hand-dyed ribbons and a multitude of supplies perfect for any seamstress or “altered art” artist … all displayed in unique antique pieces.
The full name is Grosgrain Annie’s Ribbon Emporium.  That’s Annie Evans with Jo Ann to the right, her mother and the shop’s namesake.  Both are very creative, especially with scissors, a needle. or a crochet hook!
Jo Ann is an expert at hand dying, everything from 1920 silk ribbon to paper tags, to feathered birds, tiny Christmas trees, even clothes pins!  She’s quite an artist when it comes to “aging” just about and is always willing to share her techniques.
But more than anything, The Ribbon Emporium is “wedding central” at Lakewood 400 where Jo Ann and Annie have helped numerous brides prepare for their big day.
The Ribbon Emporium is the 2nd shop to the left as you enter.
