One too many jerks on your phone? Fix that loose connection with a new telephone cord. Our replacement set includes (1) 80" wall-to-phone line cord and a matching 16" coiled handset cord that extends to approx 6 feet, with modular plugs on both ends of both cords. The sets are forest green, white, taupe, light blue, dark blue, and whatever shows up next. Our choice, but we'll give you (4) sets in at least (2) different colors, at a price that will ring your bell.
Leftovers from some sort of game, these 19" sq pieces of canvas have one plain, natural side, and one side with a central home and (4) corner zones each marked by a colorful D&D style design. The dominant colors may be yellow, blue, red or white, our choice. Make up a game to use the design, flip it over and use it as a raw material, or just accept it as a protective table mat for the kids' work projects.
Made for extended chemistry experiments, our really long borosilicate test tube is 18mm (23/32") outside dia. x an incredible 32" long, with no lip. (And we don't want any lip anyway.) No chemistry experiment? Feed strings of small holiday lights into a handful of them and create a dazzling light fixture. Or play the get-the-worm game with really extraordinary tequila shots!
These just in, special for military strap aficionados. Right angle olive-drab canvas strap. The wide part measures 17" x 2" and is sewn onto a U-shaped steel clip with a 13-1/2" long x 1" strap mounted at right angles to it. Both straps have steel ends with (2) 3/16" holes. Quite useful for something, we're sure.
Just like mom carries, but sized for tots whose hands are closer to the ground. Our little canvas tote bags measure 8-3/8" x 8-1/2" x 2-1/4" with pix of cartoon kids on one side. You pick a dozen with either "Grandma, you're sweet" or "Grandpa, you're full of fun" above the cartoon, and with appropriately pink or blue handles.
Not actually a mystery--it’s one of (4) olive drab polymer paddle-ish things used to hold up mosquito netting over cots in the military. We’ve got the paddles, but not the stakes or nets, so we recommend creating a new game with these and whiffle balls or shuttlecocks in the woods. Or carry them as emergency canoe paddles for when you’re up a creek, or use them as props in a musical. Or you tell us. Measure 29-3/4" long with a 2-3/8” hole at one end, tapering from 3-3/4” down to 1-1/2” with a 6" dia round at the other end.
Kudos to the customer who knows what these are. (Quick - cover up the
rest of this write-up while you look at the picture!) They're big oval
suction cups of solid but flexible white rubber. Molded cylinders rising
from them are about 1" deep x 1-1/4" od. The insides are threaded, a
standard plunger size. The triple sucker, with (3), is 4-5/8" x 9-3/4".
Candle holders for sailboats? Antler holders for reindeer costumes? Dime
collectors for dashboards? Okay. Okay. They're made to grab onto the
bottom of a bar sink and hold fat brushes with threaded handles. A quick
twist of an upside-down beer glass, and it's washed. We liked the
antler idea better.
Standard-sized, white-plastic wall plates for permanent A/V wiring. The (3) color coded female RCA terminals will let you get rid of that unsightly tangled rat's nest of cables on the floor and cleanly and neatly run them through the walls. You deserve that video screen and stereo speakers in the bathroom after all.
This 3-piece set includes a 1-1/2" wide seam roller, an 8" plastic paper smoother (to chase air bubbles out) and a small utility knife with snap-off blades. Sold for applying borders, but it will work with any seams and air bubbles and cuts. You may still need one of those big wallpaper-paste brushes but we can't be expected to do everything for you, can we?
