One thing I have done is check out the dollhouse area at Hobby Lobby... I've bought some tiny brass hinges there. Not so bad to go to the checkout with them, but when you're standing there "browsing" the dollhouse items and one of the store employees gives you that look...   :lol:

 

l have had some strange looks also in the doll house section buying a hanfull of items at hobby lobby. Also get that look at walgreens buying make up applicators for detail work.  l am just glad l don't have to get anything in the Kotex isle....

Kotex.. reminds me of when I worked in a convenience store as a teen.  I'd be at the register and some poor young girl would quietly slip a pack up on the counter, hoping to get out of there with minimal embarassment.  The store would be fairly busy with a line at the register,  I'd hold the pack up and yell across the store to my co-worker, "Hey Doug, how much are these?"  He'd yell back,  "Regular or Extra Absorbant?"  About three exchanges later I'd get the price and ring it up. The girl would nearly be under the counter at that point.  Hey, we were kids!

This may change your mind ! I live in Idaho and am a die-hard snowmobiler, I carry Tampons in my back pack at all times....

 

YOU ASK WHY ?   Survival. If you get a bloody nose, push one in and pull the rip cord.  We also use them to start fires. Hold the string and dip it into the gas tank, toss on some wood and light it up. The thing will burn for 10 minutes on it's own..And i buy them all by myself!

Yeah I've shopped at beauty sections of stores for sanding boards and sticks, at JoAnn's for fabric, and at doll house stores for those great little brass hinges and other "little" items for detail stuff.

As for the tampons, they were also used in the early wars to plug bullet holes. I have yet to master the airbrush, once I do I will be buying more nail polish. As for the doll house and jewelry I'm looking over that stuff too, one because I got my wife one of those houses. Second I'm looking for parts.

For the record, I'm pushing 30 and I don't care what people think. Someone is always going to have an opinion about you, might as well make it a good one lol

Today while shopping as I was getting to the checkout aisle, I wondered into the makeup section. Bought a new bottle of a nail polish blue color I've never seen before, and some foam applicators, and brushes. for doing weathering powders.

Today I was looking in the nail polish area of an Avon booth at a flea market and pulled out a really cool blue and said "I need a few bottles of this".I had the wierdist looks from half adozen women.

If I need an item from the jewelry making section or dollhouse section, I always make my girlfriend pretend like she is one who needs to roam the aisle.  And then I give her money to make the purchase.   Drives her nuts.  I shouldn't be embarrassed.  But I am.  In fact, I've never told one single friend that I build models.  All my guy friends would never let me live that down.

Ha!  That is funny!  Yeah, maybe I do need some new friends.  But in their defense, they don't know about my hobbies so they've never had the chance to laugh at me.  But I know they would.  And that's fine.  I laugh at them too.

I think the key words here are " I always make my girlfriend" Since when can you make a girlfriend do anything?   :o

Of course by "make" I mean politely ask.  Then she rolls her eyes and helps me out.

My friends have known for years that I build, and they are amazed at what I can do with different things.  I finally got my wive to get over it also when I would get into some strange areas of the stores. Also it didn't help that I was manager of a small craft store back in the 80's. Amazing the things you can do with all of the beads, and bangles.

 

BTW no offense for the pic.
