Default roach clips?

HI!
Where can I find roach clips? I have a beaded mono adhesive holder that I'd like to attach with a roach clip.

(...did you wonder what I needed a roach clip for?)

I thought they were called "alligator clips" in the real world?

Roach Clip or Alligator clips can be found in most Hardware stores.


Look in the Electrical department. This is where my dh finds them.

At one time I made my own sponge dauber with the Roach Clip.

I took a Pencil or a skinny piece of wood stick and place the clip on it. And then added a sponge.

Doesn't knowing what roach clips are kind of date us? You'd think we'd been around during the sixties or something!

Did you guys see that show last night with Elaine from Seinfeld its called something New Christine? She found a roach and didn't know what to call it, tried to smoke it and it went up in a puff of smoke. It was so funny.

snicker snicker!

Can't you just see it now? A whole new market for us crafters - decorated paraphernalia! First, decorated roach clips...then, we move on to bongs (I'm thinking the rub-ons might work here!)...maybe we can stamp the joint paper before we use it!

Next thing you know, Cheech and Chong are making a new movie, and we're in it! 'Hey, man, do you think you can decorate my roach clip, man?'


LOL!

This is a great thread! You ladies have me ROFLMAO!

uhmm, yeah I know what a "head shop" is. There used to be a big one called the Infinite Mushroom that was located by one of the older malls in Orlando. That was an interesting place, no doubt!

Ok girls I called my twenty yr old nephew to ask him these burning questions. He said yes they still use them, not him of course. And was laughing at us old ladies talking about this. At least we brought a smile to a young boys face.

ROFL - this is just too funny!! and the kids think we don't know anything.

Anywho, I made my applicators out of wood dowels for making furniture,etc. I drilled a little hole in one end with my dremel, put in a drop of wood glue, and stuck in the roach clip, ahem, I mean alligator clip.

I stained the whole thing with acrylic paint and coated it with clear krylon. I gave one to all my stampin buddies to hold pom-poms for chalking.

When I gave it to them they all looked at the clip, looked at each other, and cracked up. They were trying NOT to admit what they were thinking... ah, honesty always wins out. Thanks for a great thread!

Our head shop was called *The Gas Station*, and I remember a poster that said *Life is a gas for 33 cents a gallon!* I just filled up my card for 3.49C a galoon, YIKES!!

Actually alligator clips aren't the same....they are those black clips with the flip down handles.

Now as to the roach clips.........I was a GOOD girl.......I didn't use those! Hard to understand how I even made it through High School where most of the kids were smoking pot and half of the parents were dealers.....but hey.....it was Aspen......most of those people had WAY too much money.
