    As some of you know I have been collecting the US State quarters for ages and finally I now have the complete set which will save me ages going through my small change every time I make a purchase.

    Does anyone know of anywhere in the Orlando area that I can buy a display unit or map for them as I would like to mount them and hang them on the wall of my "den"? [I`ve done a search on the Michaels and Joanne`s sites to no avail. ]

    Catrancher kindly posted a link to a site that would mail them but that only applies to US addresses. I would have had one mailed to our property managers and collected it from them when we are over there but I`ve left it a bit late now.

    Hmmmm... Let me nosey around Slowhand. I think Borders, Books A Million and or Barnes and Noble carries them.

    Herself got some from Books A Million I think.

    (Is it too late to have them sent my our address? That way we can hold them for you or send them along to you or whatever)?

    That`s very kind of you to offer it to be sent to you Tink , but if you think that those places you mentioned do stock them, then probably that would be my best option as at least I could see what I`m buying!

    I know there is a Barnes & Noble at Winter Park, but whereabouts are Books a Million and Borders? [Those are new names to me!]

    What about Hobby Lobby. I know the one up here by my house carries those.

    Don't know if there any in Orlando though.
