Glass aquarium holding ribbon collections (I admit it: I'm trying to get better at actually using my ribbons). The narrow cotton paper ribbon on spools are old and French.
Ribbons are always at the top of my buying list in France. This double-face satin ribbon, purchased by the 'metre', is still folded in the wrapped skeins fashioned by the French store clerks.

Corsage ribbon, beautiful color, and special because it's from Minneapolis.
More of that wrapped skein satin.
French garment tags, vintage.
