    I went out to the garage to do a little work getting ready for the garage sale on sat. I swear there are 5 million zippers, so I am exaggerating there are probably only a few hundred thousand.
    Yes I want empathy!
    Oh ya and the fabric the to go pile ought to be bigger.

    Seriously? A few thousand? Wow! I would buy some if I were nearby. I bought several at a consignment shop for 10 cents each and was very happy with my purchase.

    And here I've been looking for a zipper to put in my cushion!
    I have a few in my closet all wrong size let alone wrong color.

    I bought a copy paper box full of new zippers at a Thrift Store for $5 and have used many. Also gave some away on the board. Great find !!! I know you could sell some.

    Hmmmm....zippered block pockets on a doll quilt, to hold the doll's extra clothes....or with teddies peeking out....or with the pulls removed, lined up for railroad tracks....endless possibilities but not enough time to play!

    I wish you were close enough as well, in fact I wish all of you were much closer. Here are few pics for you and every one else.

    That's an impressive assortment of zippers! I've been wanting to try making one of those flower pins made of metal zippers. Looks like you could make a few thousand of them! I wonder what you will be storing in all those containers after you get rid of the zippers.

    I bought a bunch of zippers in an auction a couple of years ago. I sent them all over the country in the mail. I bet you would get lots of takers if you offered them for postage plus a bit.
