So my husband and I went to the RagShop's Out of Business Sale last night.  I saw a basket full of loose magnets with no price.  I brought it up to the register. 

The girl at the register looked a the huge pile of magnets and asked, "How many magnets do you have?"

I replied, "All of them."

She said, "The regular price was $0.20 each, the sale price is $0.10 each.  But I don't want to count them."

My dear husband said, "Will you take $5.00 for all of them?"

She smiled and said, "Sure!" 

So I got home and counted them.   I have a total of 670 magnets!

Regular Price      $0.20 x 670 = $134.00

Sale Price          $0.10 x 670 = $ 67.00

My Price                             = $  5.00  SWEET!

So now what?  The magnets have a diameter of 16mm.  Slightly smaller than a dime.  I guess I could cover my fridge with MARBLE MAGNETS.

Do you have any other crafty ideas?

You could sell magnets for 10 cents each and make $62.00 Wink

Perhaps an amazing set of fridge magnets?  You could attach just about anything to them.

awesome deal, btw.... Cheesy
maybe you could make a magnet board... you know, kind of like a corkboard but with magnets... mount them in a single layer on a thing piece of wood or something, then cover with a thin layer of fabric and attach more magnets to the outside. voila!!
