This is great. I have been looking for ages for a system to store ribbon that is easy to work with and can store a large amount of ribbon. This is perfect. Actually the top knobs keep the ribbon from falling off if it is tipped over.

Not what I expected
The unit serves its purpose, but it's cheaply made. The dowels are not straight - they are warped and the base does not sit flat- it wobbles. I've had to put a shim under it for it to sit straight.

was way to flimsy ,,.....did not work one of the sticks broke off ....i ended up using as a lazy susan once i removed the holders

This ribbon organizer came with warped dowels and a crooked base. I thought it might look OK when I put the ribbon spools on it, but it doesn't. They lean in three different directions and the whole thing rotates unevenly.

Bought to organize ribbon and it is perfect. Great price.

My best suggestion is: More appropriately used for your children's arts & crafts room. My best friend enjoys making bows and I thought this would be a very nice addition to her very nice craft room, but when it arrived it was chipped and scratched. Not the best quality, but I love the lazy susan.

Weak and wobbly...
I bought 2 of these to organize ribbons based on the photos. When they arrived they were very flimsy and wobbly. The premise of being on a lazy-susan is a good one, but poorly crafted. The dowels do not sit tightly on the base, and as a result are crooked. They are also very close together and only our smaller diameter ribbons will fit on it next to one another. I used hot glue around the base of each dowel to secure them, but wouldn't recommend these.

Gets the job done
This is the best product I've found for storing my scrapbook ribbon spools. However, that being said, I'm not in love with these. They are cute, but I have 3 of them, and they all have crooked posts once screwed in. But, they still work despite being crooked. If you are looking for an efficient way to store your ribbons, and still see which ones you already have, I would recommend this, even with its "flaws"

I was so psyched about this product!!! unfortunately, it arrived with wobbly, crooked dowels that look horrible. i was just going to forget about the loss but maybe i'll call and try to get a better one. (what a pain!)

Great Idea! Works wonderfully!
Great idea! Would be really great if there where four poles instead of just three. One pole does lean to the side, but...once you put ribbon on it you can't really tell. So for $10 the product is great for what it does.
