For whatever reason my husband collected these in the late seventies/eighties.  Anyone have any ideas on what to do with them?  I have at least 200-300.  All vintage if that is what you want to call them.  Pepsi, Squirt, Fresca, Tab, Coke, 7 up.....

You're so lucky!  I'd love to have those soda caps.  This is one thing we did with our beer caps:

They make great photo charms.  I use the clear plastic bottle for the glass and fold the edge over.

I really need to get a lot of these babies to make stuff and sell for fund raising for an art club. Where can I some in bulk or a lot of them for free or a really cheap price?

I buy new ones at the wine/beer making supply store.  Here in small town Canada a bag of 100 cost me about 4 bucks I think.

My friends and I are all pretty heavy drinkers, so whenever we party, I just scavenge the bottlecaps off the floor, then wash them vigorously once I sober up.

How quickly do you need them? I'd say just ask your friends to collect them for you and watch out for them yourself, otherwise, try maybe looking for beermaking supply websites.

give a local bar a bucket to save them for you.  you'll have to wash them but you'll collect them super quick.

You can also post a want on your local Freecycle. Also, some surrounding area freecycle groups will allow outside members if you are willing to drive to pick up. You may just find someone with a collection they will part with. I just found out my brother threw out a drawer full of corks and caps because he didn;t know about freecycle and the fiance didn't want them. Aauuugh.

Just go to the local restaurant bar and you will get a nice supply. close to the mall there are a lot of restaurant bars. You just have to pick them up every day the management won't want them hanging around. If you know someone in the Navy that goes to bars a lot they can get you bunches too.

Take a walk down the beach, river, lake.  My son had a science project we had to take pictures for and I was disgusted how poorly the river bank is kept up.  But now I can get my caps! (and other Junk!)
