Big Lots has good Pencils (just plain with #2 on them)

Antique shops can be a gold mine. I found my ashtray, scissors, razor and a 61 quarter along with a few other goodies just by strolling around a few.

1961 thrift stores and antique stores are a great place to start.

Now that I think about it, I also got my ashtray from Goodwill. I got the one I sent to Simon from St Vincent De Paul. I have found most of my objects on eBay and every object that I didn’t find on eBay could also have been found there. eBay and object collecting are intimate lovers.

I also found an Ace comb that's very close at a grocery store. Then there's the Kleenex, The Paper Clip, Shoe Laces, Socks and Tie that should be easy to find.

And I also made The Fingerprint with a 3x5 card, a stamp pad and a piece of clear packing tape.
