How is the web site look & feel / user friendliness? Is it easy to surf?
The website is very user friendly, colorful, and emits lovely energy. It was easy to navigate, and I found several choices. There is a multitude of ribbon colors in various widths, as well as other trims, feathers, flowers ric rac, all kinds of stuff. There are tutorials as well as a fabric section.
Is this a commercial web site? If yes how are the prices? Do they have a secure shopping cart?
This is a commercial site, and I found the prices very reasonable. I needed ribbon for trim and wasn't certain which color to get, so I ordered several. They offer 5 yard rolls of 1 1/2" wide striped grosgrain ribbon for $3.25.

How is the customer service? I didn't need the customer service, although I did have a hard time placing my internet order the first time, and decided to wait until they were open, try again and call if I had a problem again. I didn't have a problem and just placed the order.

Have you bought anything from this web site? If yes, was the item delivered on time?
Very fast service. The invoice has the order filled on a Tuesday, and I received on Friday via USPS. Shipping was very reasonable. I ordered 4 different ribbons, each 5 yd. amounts and 2 samples of others, and the shipping was $2.55.

Would you recommend this site to others?
Absolutely. Very fascinating site with lots of trims.
