Just a quickie, the keys, as far as I'm aware are not solid - they are embossed metal so one side will be concave...

Since I am on a tight budget going to the Williams Magic store in Tucson has had to decrease to one every month -- or two

Now I have to stay away from Wal-Mart and Michaels as well since you guys started pointing out ways to use all this stuff in the craft sections. That is because they always have unique boxes of some type -- and it is up to me to figure out what they will do ---

Lebanoncircle,

I bought a package of the keys and they're whole keys.
They appear the way a key should appear. Hope that helps.

Hi Craig,

Thanks for the info.

Unfortunately they want $20.50 postage on top of the price, so I don't think I'll bother.

Thanks again,

BOBBY.

That reminded me of the first time I saw Jim Gerrish performing Sefalaljia with a plastic crate from the Dollar Store. His story was that he was walking in the crowded aisles of the Dollar Store when this little plastic crate fell on his head. He put it back and it jumped right down again. After doing this several times, he decided that the crate might be haunted, bought it, and took it home to examine it more carefully.

I was giggling to myself when I heard the story, but the audience ate it up. Apparently weird things happen to others in crowded Dollar Stores and I overheard several people talking about similar experiences to one another after his performance (OK, so I eavesdropped!). The dark, spooky forests and caves of the past follow us into the spooky corners of our own modern world.

I usually have a blast at Michaels looking for odds and ends. I love their small bottles and vases, for example.

Another great place to look for unusual, exotic, and affordable bizarre goodies is "Home Goods" stores. If you have one nearby, check it out. They're nothing like a boring old "Linens 'n' Things", which is what I thought at first. Home Goods has some really neat stuff.
Just hanging out with the rest of my fellow dregs.

I saw a lot of the Tim Holtz products on eBay for those of you who don't have stores that sell it in the area. May also have better shipping prices.

Type in: Tim Holtz ideaology in the search.

Always remember the craft stores generally have a 40% off any single item coupon available every week.

Also the craft stores generally accept their competitors coupons too.

This site always has the weekly coupons available to print.

Just received my set after ordering from WalMart online, for ten bucks. They are absolutely beautiful! They'll come in handy for a variety of routines. Thanks again for the heads up!

Michael's sells a great glass and wood display case for football helmets. Perfect to display a Doug Highly Zibit!

(Of course, I am a huge sucker for keys and boxes...)

I just discovered these keys while searching for something else and I was just about to post a very similar idea. Gotta love the new and improved Search feature on the Café! Smile

These ideas are already in Scott Grossberg's "the seven keys" booklet. He also uses the same keys from Michael's. I don't see the effect available on his site any longer, but he has marketed these ideas with these keys. Just a heads up. . .not trying to start anything!

Sold out. Smile I wonder if he means the book or the keys, or both. Smile

I'm sure it's the book because the keys are avialable in many different places as noted in this thread!

I love Scott's "The Seven Keys" reading system -- sorry to hear it is sold out. Since the Word Keys and Muse Tokens appeared, Tim Holtz has come out with a lot of things that, while being craft oriented, are of great interest to mentalists and readers, like the Philosophy Tags, and some items that Iain Dunford uses for his wonderful "Tessarula" reading system. I was just at Hobby Lobby today, and they have an entire Tim Holtz section with all kinds of cool stuff.
