a long shot...

I am looking for some hemostats and I hear that doctors/surgeons throw them out on a regular basis, so I was just wondering if any of you happen to be a doctor or know a doctor who has a couple of pairs that they would like to donate to a poor crafter (that would be me!)
I will happily pay for the postage, I want them for turning and stuffing dolls and softies.
thanks!

  2. I can't help much, but they are also used for fishing, so maybe a fishing supply store is a place you can check. One of the first things my mom gave my to complete my sewing kit besides the regular basics was a pair of hemostats. So handy!!
    There are some cheap ones here: http://www.fishermanswarehouse.com/shop/cart.php?m=product_detail&p=3150

  3. Harbor Freight also sells various sizes cheaply. And they have an online store.
