LATEX WEATHER BALLOON 8 FOOT DIAMETER
Giant Weather Balloon
If the question is whether to tie a bunch of these giant latex professional weather balloons to a lawn chair, the answer is no. (They burst at about 82,000 feet anyway.) Besides, this is a true weather balloon, with plenty of fun, nonfatal uses. The cream-colored latex balloon is approx 40" dia when flaccid, you should pardon the expression, but has an 8-foot dia when inflated. The neck is 9" long x 1" dia. Scientists, meteorologists, inventors, teachers and the imaginative filmmaker are warned to launch the balloon carefully. The material is delicate and not made to survive brushes with pavement, pine branches, or clumsy physics students.

TWO POUNDS OF PENS
Pens By The Pound
Just like buying salami, except you can't take notes with lunch meat, and these pens cost less than sausage. We bought them in bulk, and we're selling them in bulk. Our PKG will get you (2) lbs of assorted, but very nice, ballpoint pens with a gallimaufry of logos and names. For future reference, pens weigh in at approx (50) per pound, give or take.

8 FOOT SOLAR BALLOON
It Can Fly!
Blow up this big, 8-foot long x 2-foot dia, solar balloon on a sunny day and then sit there, maybe enjoying a refreshing beverage, and watch while the sun heats up the black surface and the air inside expands and becomes lighter than the surrounding atmosphere and the whole thing rises like your hopes for a bright future. Includes a 20-foot cord to keep it in check. Works best on a cool but bright day. Don't we all.

EMBROIDERY SCISSORS
Stork Snippers
You should never snip a real stork but if you do embroidery, cutwork or other fancy seamstering, you’ll recognize these small, 3-1/2” long, stork-shaped scissors as the specialty cutters you need for that sort of work. Their tiny, 3/4” long super-sharp points will snip all the way to the tip.
