Clearance & Special Deals

Cool stuff... CHEAP!

Items that say Special Purchase are one-time deals we have found for you and cannot be restocked. Once They're Gone, They're Gone (OTGTG).


Mini Compasses - Seconds

We have a large number of imperfect little compasses - badly scratched tops, ugly blubs on the hands, broken open, etc. Still, they would be useful for collage and assemblage parts. Before we throw them out ("Mon Dieu!!") you can rescue them.

Small plastic compasses are 1-1/8" across, 3/8" thick, very lightweight, with black backs.

Price: 25+ for $1.00

Altoid Tins

Special Find A small stash of empty Altoid tins has been discovered in a forgotten box, representing many different flavors. They make great pocket shrines or decorate one and use it for a gift box. We've even seen one made into an art doll body!

Special Find Some Fall housecleaning uncovered another hidden gem: Bettors, which are part of a mahjong game set. The little cylinder turns and has 4 different characters, letters, or numbers. We have several designs, as the larger image shows. We're not sure what you will come up with for using these, but they are very cool looking! Most of the ones in stock now are similar to the red one in the small image - only blue.

Bettors are used when playing the game of mahjong. As we understand it, a spectator guesses who will win and dials in the symbol for that player. The spectator apparently wins something if they're right. 1-5/8" x 1"

Price: 5 for $1.00

Washi Tape Grab Bags - Overstock Sale

Adhesive Japanese Washi tape is perfect for craft projects, gift-wrapping, scrapbooking, decorating notebooks, or anything else you can think of! "Washi" is Japanese for a paper that is more commonly known as rice paper. Easy-to-tear, the tape is repositionable and semi-translucent, so itís great for layering to create unique designs.

We have lots of different designs in small amounts, many not even pictured on the Fibers & Tapes page. So let's clean up the storeroom and give everyone a great deal! Five (5) random rolls of top quality Washi Tape for only $2.00 per roll. Each bag will have a variety of patterns and colors.

Surprise Boxes

New! ---> Now that we are closing the shop, we will be adding many items from our regular lineup to the Surprise Boxes, in addition to other samples and special purchases. All cool stuff for your crafting pleasure! If you are interested in a particular category of items, you can mention it in the message box on the shopping cart and we will try to accommodate you.

So now we are boxing everything up and selling it at half the regular retail price! Each box will be different, but will be worth at least twice the price. You will find anything and everything in there -- ribbons, brads, beads, charms, game pieces and who knows what! Everything is brand new, unused merchandise. The style is general use, not holiday, and nothing is especially wild or too funky.
