acrylic paperweight stands - help please
« on: July 23, 2009, 09:09:31 AM »
Can anyone help point me in the right direction as to where I can buy acrylic paperweight stands.   I've looked on EBay without success and tried Google - not a huge help.

Thanks very much

Get yourselfthese acrylic "photo blocks" from the pound shop - they slide apart and provide two good stands at virtually no cost. They also double your shelf space.

Fortunately - I'm sure.  If you cannot pick these up at M.Brico or the GĂ©ant Casino - try shops that supply display materials to the local trade.

I'm intriged by the pound-shop idea - next time I'm near one I'll pop in.

If they do work I'd be happy to get you some and post. Email me your address details if you want me to try!!!
