    I used to buy those plaster columns at Michaels art store, but they no longer carry them. Does anyone know where to find them at a decent price ? Or any other suggestions for display stands.. Basically I want to display my studio scale starships on them. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    They don't sell them anymore??? hmmmm.... I know I've seen the shorter versions at Walmart.... Have you tried the plant/garden section of Home Depot, or similiar places???

    Yeah home depot does not carry them at all, neither does Pier one or bed bath and beyond. I'm screwed. Michaels was the only place around that had them, 30 bucks a pop too.

    Perhaps Gardenridge has them or Hobby Lobby?

    I was just in Hobby Lobby yesterday, looking for pedastals. They do indeed have those columns you're speaking of.

    Any good suggestions where to find nice pedastals? 12" diameter, preferably between 24" and 36" tall. Preferably under $40 each (I need to get a few).

    They may be a seasonal item at Michael's.
    I usually see them in spring an summer times.

    Also in the summer time Target gets the plastic ones that look like stone.

    Walmart should still have them in crafts.

    Michaels totally discontinued them, they weren't seasonal. They had them year round, they kept breaking in shipping so they decided to not carry them any more.
    I don't have any hobby lobbys here in Florida that I know of, but I'll try Wal mart and Marshalls, thanks guys.

    If the columns are made of plaster anyway... Does it count as recasting if you make copies for your own use? :)

    I've seen them at Garden Ridge if you have a store near you.
