Balls Of Steel

What can we say about chrome steel ball bearings besides their essential uses? Well, a lot, actually. They're perfect for Rube Goldberg displays and artwork. Imagine them in various sizes in a glass container. Imagine dipping them in paint, rolling them on canvas and making the world forget about Jackson Pollock. They also work as heavy-duty marbles, and might even calm you if you place a few in your palm and work them like a stress ball. See what you can come up with when the wheels start turning? Ball bearings. Wheels turning. We know you got it. You pick the size that suits your bearing needs.

Fishnets

Not fishnet stockings, but netting for actual fish, direct from the U.S. Army (you'd think Navy, wouldn't you?) in olive drab. It's a survival thing. You get a 10-foot x 5-foot net made of 3/4" squares individually knotted from twisted cotton/nylon, so the net won't unravel if torn. Might have a slightly musty aroma (but definitely not fishy) that a little sunshine time will fix. Great for maritime-theme decoration, bible-camp plays (filled until breaking, walking-on-water background prop…) or, we suppose, fishing. And perfect if you want to go to a costume party as Poseidon.

Mooooo!

This is your chance to own a genuine cow magnet.
