Money's money. It all spends the same. Given most of the time I use the Coin Star's so it is less troubling for both me and the cashier.

 

Here's some 5MM Sequins that I got off of Ebay to imitate CD's. 300 count for $1.99 with free shipping. Before I placed them in the car, I did upload some AC/DC, Bon Jovi, Kiss, etc. to the CD's so rocking out won't be a problem.  B)  :D

I love this thread, awesome ideas, I build mostly lowriders and my favorite are from the 70's, with rabbit ear antenna, fish tanks, and chandelier's . I use these to make the chandelier's. Just add fine wire and add more clear pieces to it, then glue to headliner.

There's not too much call for them, but it also makes nice curb feelers:

3/16" eyelets make decent carb stacks for hot rods:

I have a couple more, but Fotki is giving me fits right now....

I went to michaels and could not find the eyelets, do you remember the brand name for them, those stacks look as good or better to me than the aluminum ones.

 I don't remember the name, but I can get them locally if you have enough trouble getting them in your neck of the woods.

Could those eyelets also be found, in alternate, at a fabric shop?  Those are the compressible type right? which punch through cloth, and then flatten like a rivet does

This is not really a craft store find so it might be slightly off topic. Habitat for Humanity opened up a resale store in an empty supermarket store space here in Williamsburg. So Wednesday I go in to look around. I picked up a four pieces of PVC pipe fixtures and a couple of tiles for a total of $1. I glued the fixtures to the tiles and now I have four holders for liquid glue/paint/whatever that keep me from knocking the bottle over. But wait the best is yet to come. I figure I will head over to the paint/adhesive section and see what they have there. 

Lo and behold there is a metal fishing tackle box. Inside are 40 different shades of Polly S paints all still liquid. Also inside there are alligator clips, swiss files, 8 brushes from 2 to 000, and a couple of tool handles. Total cost 6.

My next project is to make an RPM controller for my dremel. Cost will be around 3. There is a lot of wild stuff in there. Tools, donated surplus material and furniture and kitchen gear.

Not only a good deal, but helping out a good cause.

If you have something similar in your area check it out.

I found these a while back but was just able to pick up the pack, mostly wanted the tiny pennies, nickels, and dimes for my strippers delight build, but the watch parts come in handy to. and probably will add the hearts and stars to the trailer for the strippers delight as well. The large penny is for reference only in the pic to demonstrate just how tiny the coins are, pack retails for $9.95 but was $6.00 after 40% coupon on the app.
