I've been cleaning out the basement for a month and I came to realize that some of my clutter is from leftovers - You know... You buy for a project and then.. somehow there is leftovers -not enough for a whole new project but you can't bring yourself to just throw things out. I am going to continue to post over the weekend the leftovers in the hope that someone wants something. Free to the asking - Would appreciate being reimbursed for shipping.
I encourage others to post their leftovers as well, should anyone have any.

Item #1 Message bottles -
Originally purchased from sandsscripts.com for a project last year, i bought 60, used 50. Have ten left. If you look up message bottles medium it measures approx 2.13" diameter, approx 9.0" high the neck opening is approx 3/4" diameter, includes cork

Uses ? Potion bottles ? Sand art? Scavenger hunt?Robinson Caruso stag party?
Anyone interested ? I hate throwing stuff out.

I hate that. Try to make something, need two inches of whatever it is, have to buy 5 yards. Never find a use for the rest, so it sits around for 3 generations until your great grand kids throw it away...at least that's the way it works around here. Good plan here - let somebody else find a use for this stuff.

Item#10 Brass Grommets
Originally purchased 8 packages as a trial for a project –I Also purchased the die set for by hand installation. After 1 night of my hammering on the floor - hubby asked just how many were ‘we’ planning on doing for this project?. I said I think I need to install 500 grommets, but it’s a work in progress…. He quietly walked away and ordered a TEP-3 Grommet machine to be overnighted.

Uses? Quick way to make curtain swags, also helpful for Pirate sails…
