    Default Needing flat pieces of magnet (sheets?)

    Hi! I don't know if this is the best place to post this or not, but I'm looking to round up some flat/sheet magnets. I know you can buy larger sheets some places, but I'd love to round up some older magnets to recycle them. I know people often have magnets from different places/events that are flat like this or you get the advertising ones (my parents always seem to get them from real estate agents and they can be really big!) Probably anything over about 2" by 3" would be useful.

    We're in NW London and I don't mind picking up near by, or trying to coordinate a bit further afield when I'm out, if anyone can give me a hand.

    Or if you know a better place to ask, that would be helpful too! I used to keep tonnes of this kind of stuff when I did child care, but I slowly got rid of everything!

    I've downsized to a sweet little yellow brick home in Old East. My backyard is a haven for birds :)

    I threw out a dozen or so when I moved - sorry! I think Staples sells flat ones the size of business cards if that's any help.
    Love seeketh not itself to please,
    Nor for itself hath any care,
    But for another gives its ease,
    And builds a Heaven in Hell's despair.

    Thanks for the ideas - somewhere cheap to get them would be great! Some of the craft places charge a bit for big pieces.

    I also for new, cheap magnets nearby, Dollarama at Sherwood Forest Mall has magnet sheets as well as a thin, strip/roll, of a slightly thicker magnet.

    Off to Dollarama I got then Sounds like a plan! I'm beginning to think that I'm the only person who used to collect tonnes of stuff that looked like they would make good crafts and then never use it, hehe.

    I've often collected things for crafts, but then didn't get around to using them. So I'm trying to declutter a bit...

    I do the same thing! but as soon as you throw it out, you finally find something to do with it!

    What about freecycle? Or posting something on kijiji saying you would take some for free. There has to be people out there that has their fridge FULL of magnets. I vowed to never have anything on my fridge, so I can't help you out, but hopefully someone can! There has to be someone out there that has a magnet collection!

    I did try the former freecycle now Full Circles list and no responses That list is so full of 'wanted's all the time that you don't seem to get anywhere offering stuff for looking for stuff unfortunately...
