I love the cute red and yellow cherry ruffle trim, above. And you can't go wrong adding Rick Rack and bakelite or glass buttons to your project.
Embroidered ribbons and trims are great for sewing or crafting (prefect for gift tags).
The exquisitely detailed victorian petticoat edging, black lace and silk shamrock embroidered trim is almost too pretty to use. But, I like having it around to admire. :)
