New paper and ribbon storage -- check it out!

I found this paper storage in an eBay sellers store.  It's all wood and custom made with 72 slots and FABULOUS!  Check this site out!  Not a piece on plastic on this and it's perfect.

I got these all-wood ribbon storage units from Stamp-n-Storage.  Totally fabulous!  I've got two units which I stacked on top of each other for 132 linear inches of ribbon storage.

Look at the new Craft Cave!

My husband and I switched offices last weekend and I got to make his over into the Craft Cave of my dreams!  I've ordered ribbon storage from Stamp 'n Store, which I'm very excited over.  I'm still looking for wooden paper storage, though.  I love the Calypso Coral on the walls!
