Anyone know where i can find Pegholders?
« on: February 9, 2004, 04:47 PM »
I was wondering if anyone knows where i can find some of the pegs, not the pegboard, but the pegs theme selves? Any help would be nice, thank you! :)

I get all mine from a local hardware store called Fastnal   But almost any home improvment store has them. Even Walmart sells them.

It depends on where you go and the length you want but on average I would say 19- 79 cents a piece. for the type the stores use. I usually look for the 4 packs ratehr than seperate. those run about $2.00 for 4 inch peg hooks

Next time you're in a store, just take one (or two) and stick them your pants.  They don't have a security tag on them, so you don't have to worry about setting off the alarms when you leave the store.  If you do it this way, you get the cool little price stickers already attached.  No one will ever know.

Just be extra cautious.

Next time you're in a store, just take one (or two) and stick them your pants.

I don't do that, but I have developed a rather nasty habit of removing all the pegs at some of my local stores when I get irritated enough due to them being empty all the time.   >:(  If my local Targets, TRUs or WMs don't restock anything over the course of several weeks, down their pegs go.  All of 'em.  I just pull them all off the pegboard wall, and put them in a giant stack on the shelf below where the Star Wars figures should be.  Usually a good 10-12 of them at a time.  I'm sure that's showin' 'em, eh?!   :P

But that's getting a little boring now though, so I'm contemplating just carrying around some xerox copies of a piece of paper saying "Hey, here's a brilliant idea:  Stock some damned Star Wars figures on these constantly empty pegs and make your store a little money for once!", and sticking it on a peg right smack dab in the middle of all the empty pegs...

Think that would work better?  It's either that, or I just start urinating on the empty SW section, but I think that method may be a little more risky...

Same with mine...maybe I should leave a nasty note...
