I don't know but I pass them up at the thrift store...I've yet to see something made with them. I'd like to see what you come up with, maybe I'll give it a try.

I see old trophies for pennies at garage sales. I can't think of anything to use them for ! Can you share any ideas for them with us ?

I reuse old trophies too, I have made staves for parades or attach to each tent leg when I do events. MSO aka one with couch makes me musical shakers out of them which are fun. if they are the trophy ladies I use them in my collage projects. I also have a marble orchard in my yard where I laid the marble pieces like brickswhich are now covered in weeds lol One of my friends uses the wooden base parts for musical sanding bars, and drum stick practice. I do have a totem of the wonderful holographic pieces in my corner of the living room. Sometimes the special oly,pics in the area will take them too as trophies for there participants.the double ended thread rods and connectors can be used for tons of other stuff too....including link to my DDP photoalbum which has some of the other projects I get roped into hope the link works
