That's a bargain Su. I use them a lot for floors. Have stained and varnished them, always turn out ok. My shabby chic café has a floor made from them. I painted them with white acrylic paint and then rubbed it off gently so it looked white washed.

They look good quality too. Some of the sticks you see in some shops are a bit warped and knotty.

They look really useful. I'm a big fan of lolly sticks and coffee stirrers and I can see these being a versatile addition.

I wonder if local coffee shops notice a huge increase in wooden stirrer usage that coincides with Miniature fairs? It's often crossed my mind!

I picked some of these up today. I'm going to have a go at the miniature guitar tutorial I've been on YouTube. Anyone tried it?
