    Well excuuuuuse me! Believe it or not I DO know what antiquing is. I just wasn't aware that antiqued items would be hard to find. I'm thinking that Kirklands would be a good place to start. Old Time Pottery or Garden Ridge and others. Then you could try Florists who also have gift items. Now I'll find myself looking for them everywhere I go.

    Gee, Muduh, I wasn't trying to be insulting... your post implied that I was looking for old items, as you can't pass off brass for being antique brass.

    We don't have Kirklands, Old Time Pottery, and Garden Ridge in Michigan.

    Broadway, if all else fails, there's always a good ol' can of spray paint. Seriously though, there are a lot of cool types of sprays on the market that can make things look old, aged, or whatever. A good sanding on a slick, shiny surface, then spray and wha-la, "antique brass" finish.

    I wanted to bring this thread up, now that December is here....

    Does anyone know if banks will still sell savings bonds or do you have to buy from an online service??

    Broadway, did you find them, or did you use the spray paint??
    Could does not mean should

    Target has several stocking holders although I'm not sure about antique brass (I saw gold, silver and bronze on their website but I know they have a bigger selection in the store).

    You'll find them in 2 sections - one on an end-cap around the kitchen items section (main isle) and of course some in the Christmas section.

    Not sure if you're still looking, Broadway, but I just came across this thread. Do you have a Pier One by you? I can't remember if they had an actual antique brass holder, but they had LOVELY holders (they were BEAUTIFUL) in some kind of brass. I have some I'm very fond of, and almost bought these because I liked them so much.

    If you have a Joann Fabrics where your at check there, I live in Michigan too and I bought some antique looking stocking holders from there a couple of years back or maybe try Michaels.

    HELP!!!
    close friends have invited us for supper tomorrow night and I just know they are going to have something for my daughter. They have an 8 yr old boy and a 5 yr old boy.
    What is popular for older boys??? Any suggestions would be appreciated - in about the $20 range.
