  • Another 99 cent store winner

    I buy these frames called "Dream Catchers" for 99 cents, add the scroll work and sell for $18.00 for my fund raiser.

    They are 9"X10" plus feathers.

    I love the inginuity.
    DOllar stores have crushed some of the craft market. Any value plus you can make with their supplies is awesome.
    Thanks for the tip. Keep up the great work.

      John, I luv 'em. I just called a friend that owns a dollar store in the area and unfortunately she doesn't have such a thing. Was that a dollar store you got them from? I'm going to search the net and see what I can find. Great idea and thanks for posting.

        Most of the 99 cent stores are run by Orientals, not chain or franchised stores.

        Sometimes I find something I can use at Dollar General or Dollar Tree stores but I find more at the 99 cent stores.

            Check your local Michael's store for some great bargains also. I recently picked up some simple wooden frames for a dollar each. They hold a 3 X 5 picture, but the frame is wide enough that you personalize them by adding some scroll work or writing to them. They are made of 3/4 inch pine, which may be a turn off for some, but I'm sure they will finish nicely. Now if the temperatures would drop below 100 degrees here I may be able to get back out into the garage to do some cutting.

They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

              Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

              Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

              Now,...

              It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

              Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
