The manufacturer calls it the Quik Fix Zipper but they obviously don't pay a copywriter to create dumb puns. So...it's the Zip-a-dee-doo-dad, a set of (3) replacement zipper tabs/sliders in graduated sizes (#3, #5, and #7) that come apart so you can slip then onto a zipper and tighten them with a little thumbscrew. Handy for busted jackets and sleeping bags. Even handier for pants. Removeable and re-usable.
Hey, steampunk! We got your bag-o-gears right here, mostly the sort of thing that went into clocks and watches before quartz crystals and cell phones, when stuff was much cooler. But wait. Don't plan on building an actual machine with these gears--they're strictly decorative. No one will know that, though, when these industrial beauties are hanging from a chain around your neck. You get about (20) gears and flywheels in sizes ranging from 1/4" to maybe 1-1/4" in brass, bronze and gold tones.
Why does Roger always get the credit for the skull and crossbones pirate flag? We feel it is time to share and have elected Barry to the post because he just walked by the vast editorial department here at A.S.&S. (AKA "my desk") Our Jolly Barry flag is 3ft x 5 ft., black polyester with a reinforced edge containing grommets for flying. It has the traditional skull and crossbones in white with the added fillip that the skull is wearing an eye patch! Sail Away!!
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.
Cut your own. Our each is 16 feet of black flexible wire coated with 3/16" dia soft rubber, ready for you to snip off for your heavy-duty, padded twist-tie needs. Very nice stuff. Reusable. We're thinking cable bundling, sports equipments, tools, hoses, like that.
What’s the difference between a duck? One of its legs are both the same. That’s our favorite old joke here at the home office, and now you can prove it by having your very own super-authentic rubber duck feet to compare. In very duckish orange, they’re approx 3” across x 2” tall. You’ll get (4) and all you add is a couple of mallards.
Time ago, burlap bags're all over the place, child. Sisal sacks too. We used 'em to make sandbags, protect winterin' plants and keep down weeds, sew up scratchy britches, and collect frogs. Made dog beds out of 'em, fulla wood chips. Mama called 'em tote sacks or croker sacks, and daddy aluss kep' a few in the bed of the pick-up. 'Course daddy went and died and them plastic bags took over. Mama hated that. These here burlap bags used to have coffee inside and they say they're from lotta different countries and your'n might could be anywhere from about (3) to (4) foot long by 28" wide, good fer big dogs or small dogs-lotta frogs either way.
And Lash impersonators can now carry our authentic 6-foot bullwhip. Also suitable for Xena and Indiana Jones impersonators, but definitely not a toy, so exercise extreme caution when cracking. In woven black leather, with an 11" long handle, 5" looped wrist strap, and a 10" popper on the business end. Tested by the Official AS&S Bullwhip Team and found capable of the Hungarian Pig Drover's Crack.
Build your own quartz antenna. These (2) 4-3/8" x 3" x 1-5/16" plastic boxes each have (2) boxes of quartz crystals inside and (2) aluminum U-brackets that are attached to a single screw terminal on one short side of the box. Back in the early 70's, they were originally made to be used in pairs as part of a 300 Ohm antenna. Not sure if they will work with today's TV's but all you need is cabling to connect them and give it a try. Made in Brazil, the antenna capital of South America, probably.
