buy low sell high LOL

Maybe there is a secret collectors place and it will become someone else's treasure... buy low and sell high... and THEN go get some gas!

Looking at the photos I could imagine some creative artsy ebay person taking them apart and making new awards which could THEN be sold as reused or recycled.

It is really funny. Did anyone think of asking any of the bidders why they WANT them? :o

Quilts! I have seen many people use the main section of the ribbon to make quilts for other riders. Most equestrians don't want to get their own ribbons cut but will gladly use other ones to make blankets.

quilts cool

Thanks for bringing a touch of logic here. I was thinking crafts and you found one that connects to the horses and horse people.

I was actually surprised no one hadn't already brought it up.

Um, maybe someone who bought them then said they won them? O to be used at pony club ribbons or birthdays? I don't know but it's pretty silly! What a dumbo!!!!!!

We use donated ribbons for the kids in our therapy horse riding. The kids think it is awesome. So, for a non-profit org. it works out great. :)

Hey... Donated ribbons....OK Thats really cool AND makes sence!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

1 Chronicles 28:20
