Well, Miss Katie, are these used in your's Bucks business and do you buy them in a hobby shop or in a hardware section....don't panic.........nothing even close to those here--one last question to worm it out of you----are they magnetic?

are they normally used on wood products or material or plastic to anchor something in (eg. like a covering for plants)? Sorry I'm hogging the guesses....I wished that I had had the same amount of free time for Barbara's photo.......last week was crazy!!!!
