+Squirrel Nut & Beersnob Posted October 30, 2002 Share Posted October 30, 2002 First off, I'm interested to know where others stock up on trinkets, aside from the Dollar Store. Does anyone know of any places to order goodies similar to the Oriental Trading Company? (I've looked, but couldn't finsd anywhere else with the diversity of cheap interesting cache trinkets) When visiting my sister a few weeks back, she showed me a catalog for the Oriental Trading Company (www.orientaltrading.com ), which has lots of cheap but interesting toys/etc that would make great trinkets. I just recieved my order, and am overall pleased with it. I got a gross of little pop-up 'eyes' for about $4 (flip them inside out, place on a table, and they'll jump), 6 dozen mini foam gliders for about $7, a dozen wire puzzles ($6), and a dozen of the chineese 'health ball' keychains ($12)(2 of which didn't work well, but at a buck each... I called the company and they're sending me a gift certificate good twards my next order that more than makes up for the value of the 2 that don't work). Shipping and handling was about $10. The 'pop-up eyes' and mini gliders I figure on placing a few in caches that need a bit of help, or when there's nothing I want to take. The wire puzzles and health balls are for the better trades. They also have 2 dozen AA batteries for $2.50. Can't verify how good/long those would last, since I forgot to order them, but as cache trinkets they might work quite nicely. Anyone else have any places for quantity cheap (but nice) trinkets they'd like to recommend? I walk the Maze of Moments, but everywhere I turn to, begins a new beginning, but never finds a finish..
