Did you ever go shopping somewhere and just stumble upon something you just didn’t expect to find there and… that well, just blows your mind?
That’s what happened at LO (cal hardware store) last Wednesday night. We went for roof coating…for the camper. We’re in Camper MODE right now, big time! We also needed a certain set of bolts for the tail-lights… There I am
What?! Hobby and Wood?
What really caught my eye was the third- drawer with the picture of popsicle sticks… on the front!
Kidding, right? Nope.
I had to pull this drawer out and have a peek.
WHOA! Assorted sizes?! Short ones, Long ones, and TONGUE DEPRESSORS!
Who knew this? I live 45 mins to 1 hour from a Hobby Lobby. The Wal-Mart in our area…is limited and slightly picked over. I mean we just only got a NEW FULL SIZED WAL-MART about 2 years ago…and a small Neighborhood Market right here in small town USA, in March!
Hobby supplies… and of the DOLL HOUSE VARIETY… ARE IN VERY LIMITED SUPPLY ‘round these parts! If you didn’t know, I have a Doll house, two to be exact… I putter around with them, when time allows. I’ve come to love them.
Take a look at what else I found.
Wooden Flower Pot… got that label in the picture!
Wooden People shapes…
Whisky Barrels… or Barrels for whatever your brain can imagine. Doesn’t have to be whiskey. It could be a Turkey and Christmas presents from the LONG WINTER! (thank you, Ms. Ingalls-Wilder)
Oh! and MILK JUGS, TOO! For what else? MILK!
Thread spools… little, not quite small enough for a doll house. But imagine the possibilities!
Seriously, who knew?!
Small flat squares…
Small round disks… (blurry phone pic, sorry)
Large round disks… large being by comparison to the others, ONLY.
Disks, resembling small wheels, again the potential to be anything, really.
…And popsicle sticks! I’m floored. I just never knew these little items were in THAT STORE!
I’m going to go the extra mile and say… these tongue depressors might work for a lot of things… but they might not be sterile!!! (or, splinter -free) So, I don’t recommend using these to, uh…DEPRESS ANYONE’S TONGUE, OKAY?!
These are in the HOBBY WOOD drawer… marked HOBBY and WOOD. Not the FIRST AID drawer… though, you could use it to set a busted finger probably. If you had some duct tape, that is in the paint department.
‘Til next time, shop around-
You never know what you might find!
