GLASS HAND BOILER TOY
Prove You're Hot Stuff
Hold the bottom onion-shaped bulb of this 4" glass toy in your hand and watch the liquid (green, red, blue or purple, we'll pick) magically bubble up into the top chamber and keep on bubbling like the dickens, as your grandmother used to say. The magic is ethyl alcohol and physics. WARNING! The glass if fragile and the liquid is nasty. If you drop the thing in the kitchen it will eat the finish off the tile and permanently stain the floor, so don't let the kids handle this item unsupervised.

PADDLE TOGGLE SWITCHES
Fat Toggle

BROWN STAIN PEN
Stain Pen
For fixing minor scratches in furniture and cabinets, this felt-tip pen has a 3/16" wedge tip and holds a little under a third of an ounce of "provincial" stain, which some of us think is sort of walnut while others went with "chocolate milk." Think brown, but without any red notes.

You will survive with this Survival Candle, a 3-wick burner made of soy and palm wax in a 3-1/8" dia 2-3/8" tin can with a lid. Rated to last up to 36 hours.

PLASTIC FLIP-TOP STORAGE BOXES
Flat Boxes
These translucent white polypropylene flip-top boxes measure 4-3/4" x 2-1/2" x 5/8" deep and have lightly snap-close lids, so you might add a rubber band if you're carrying diamonds in them. We like them for drill and driver bits, hooks and sinkers, beads and glitter, screws and washers, and buttons and bows.

HELIX® 0.5MM MECHANICAL DRAFTING PENCIL
0.5mm Pencil
This 0.5mm mechanical drafting pencil from Helix® has a plunger mechanism with an eraser under it, and is exactly like the one Terry the Copywriter has in his briefcase for crossword puzzles because nobody's perfect, especially on the NYT Saturday puzzle, which he always finishes. Comes with a few pieces of lead, but we recommend buying 2B because it's so soft and nice to write with.

TINY SAN DIMAS CHAIR
