I have a LOT of tape measures. I bought most of them from a now-defunct junk store in a nearby town. My collection started one tape measure at a time, and I slowly started adding different styles as I experimented with making things out of them. There were standard yellow and white tape measures, giant tape measures, little flexible tape measures, cloth tape measures, etc. So many types! I found that they made excellent jewelry, especially earrings. When the junk store went out of business, I bought the entire bin. Now I’m on a lifetime quest to use them all.
