Default What's your favorite unconventional "supply" stores

I had to run to Menards today to get stuff for a boat we're revamping. I LOVE home improvement stores! I could drop SOOO much money in that place on "supplies" for my craft room.

*Rolls of thin and GORGEOUS wood veneers that would look lovely run through my die cutter. I could even stain it with reinkers! Ohhhh, and they have veneer tape that is an inch or so wide. The possibilities!

*Foil aluminum duct tape. It's shiny, malleable, and adhesive. My embossing folders are calling.

*Forget expensive screw head brads, I bought some small screws, and used a side cutter to cut off the heads. Some dazzling diamonds adhesive and they looked great!

*Unfinished multipane wooden windows. Hello inexpensive wall decor!

Home improvement stores are AWESOME! I need to go without my husband sometime so I can peruse the aisles and think of ways to repurpose everything.
