Random Bandanarama

These are all 21” square cotton/poly blend factory-second bandanas. A few are unhemmed on one side, but generally we can’t see why many of them were seconded. Most are traditional paisley designs in assorted colors, but others are novelty versions in USA and Texas flag looks, camo, smiley faces, dog paw prints, solid colors and others. It’ll be a nice change not to know exactly what you’re getting, won’t it? Buy ’em at the bulk price and resell them. Start your side hustle now!

Siliconic Hexagons

Hexagonal silicone. Whatever you like to call them. You definitely need a bunch of these translucent white, six-sided silicone discs. We've seen three sizes, but there could be more (that's surplus for ya.): 2-7/32", 2-9/16" and 3-11/16” across and all 1/16” thick. Probably from a gasket factory, but they’d make dandy vibration pads, non-slip feet, Hobbit hot pads, shot-glass coasters, earrings or very odd bouncy floor tiles. We'll pick a handful of assorted sizes for you.

Mood Sheet

See psychedelic patterns the safe way! Press your hand on this 6" x 6" sheet of liquid crystal and leave a print of swirling colors that, like the mood ring of yore, you can use as a sign of your mood. The pattern will blend and fade in seconds as the crystals react to temperature. Tiny liquid crystals inside the film-like material react to the heat of your hand, 25-30°C (77-86°F) by changing colors. As science, it demonstrates the way liquid crystal displays work. And you can cut each crystal sheet into pieces to incorporate into a science project. Or just leave it out for guests to play with when the party turns boring.
