    An acquaintance a "Christmas tree" display. "All those green ribbons, with just a few colors mixed in for decoration."

    Big card board box in the garage along with the athletic stuff from years ago and the decoy contests rewards. A couple special ones stay out for while. The ribbon box is along side the hat box of 100 + that I never intended to collect, they just got here. Next will be T-shirts and sweat shirts. If I quite buying those I could enter more HTs. Wait I can't get in so I guess more t-shirts.

    I'm going to start donating them back to the club. Dog is 8 yr old. How many orange ribbons does he need?

    ^^^^ This. If the test or ribbon is of some significance I take them but most of the time not. We've got a red, a yellow and one really big green one that mean an awful lot to me. I kept the ribbon from his HR and HRCH and I'll keep the one from his MH. If it's a club I've never run before sometimes I'll keep a ribbon. Most of the others I don't even bring home.

    Nice pallet display.
    Most of ours are in boxes but I write the dog's name, date, and judges names on the back and keep them in boxes by dog for a nice trip down memory lane.
    When we moved into our house, a friend put up some loop end cable with tacks to hang some of the fancier ones in our den which is decorated in dog motif.
    This wall is full, have to get more cables and tacks and make more room.

    There is a place that can make quilts and pillows out of your ribbons and they are really quite nice. They can even put a picture of your dog at the center I believe.

    I've even seen a crate cover sewn out of ribbons! Not durable for in the back of a truck, but kinda cool for showing off at home
