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.

Great for jewelry organization
I bought this for my bracelets and rings! I can see them all at the same time and it's much easier to get one off than the papertowel holder I previously bought. The top finials unscrew, so could be used for rings as well!

Serves its purpose
I needed something small enough for the space I had allocated but large enough to hold a bunch of the lace spools I had. the dowels stand a bit crooked and have a loose fit.

I should have read the reviews
I should have read the reviews prior to making my purchase. I recently acquired a number of spools of ribbon and thought this would be the perfect way to display them in my craft room. The idea is great but the product is poorly made so it is pretty much useless.
I received the item in the mail, took it out of the box and assembled it. The base is a lazy susan so it is supposed to spin and there are 3 dowels in different heights to hold spools. The base however did not spin properly because the hole in it was drilled off center. This makes it wobble and sit unevenly. Once of the dowels was also on a slant due to the hole being drilled at an angle instead of straight. After going back and reading the other reviews, this all seems to be a very common thing with this product.
I called and got a replacement. It turned out to be only slightly better than the first one was.
It is sad that it is so poorly made because this is a great item that may crafters need and unfortunately, more are probably returned and money refunded then are actually used.

Can't beat the price

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.

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.
