Bookends. Decorated, or just as they are. Fill them with something heavy, and you're all set.
2212  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Umbrellas? Any ideas? on: July 16, 2009 04:01:17 PM
I only had a couple-I stripped off the fabric to use later. The frame? An umbrella has eight ribs. That makes me think 'spider'. Maybe as an outdoor halloween decoration? It's nothing more than a vague idea at the moment.
I'd ebay the vintage ones.

I'd use the nifty space fabric for curtains, and go with a 50's-60's space theme! Your own little lunar module! Love that fabric.
Well, that or vintage western fun.
Whatever you do, it'll be amazing. There are just so many possibilities with this.

Occasionaly the coffee shop near me has burlap bags, and I've been wondering what could be made from them. What do you use them for?
I'd offered to get you some, but we've an ocean between us. Sad

Is there anyone else who was flaked on, and hasn't had an angel yet? I'm too broke to send overseas, unfortunately, but I'll help out anyone here in the U.S.

Nice!
And I've always liked the phrase in your sig.
2220  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Re: help prevent unnecessary waste. on: December 25, 2008 03:18:33 PM
I wish the kmart near me had you to suggest that when I worked there many many years ago! There were TONS of odd socks, ect-and the layaway clerks were expected to match them up in their spare time, and try to make complete packages, which were then resealed with packing tape. HUGE waste of time-we could never catch up, and your idea makes so much sense!

I haunt the clearance section myself-I love it when stores do that. Again, as long as they have a strict return policy, a store should be able to do that.

The books, magazines, ect-I wish the store I worked for now recycled them, but our hands are tied by corporate. Magazine distributers require use to trash the old issues after covers are torn off to be returned. Same thing with stripped books-we're contractually obligated to destroy/throw them away. When I worked for an independant store, they flouted that-let employees have stuff, and took the rest to be recycled. Bigger chains have a more rigid mindset, and are more afraid to break the rules. I know my manager has no say in the matter. Yes, it's insane not to at least recycle-I agree.
You make a lot of good points. Thank you for showing that one voice can make a difference!
