I had to run into a local Dollar Tree which is a chain of "everything for a buck" stores we have here in Florida. I assume they are other places. Anyway, I was walking the aisles looking for something and happened to see these little bags of shiny things . pink shiny things.

Well they turned out to be perfect for my "bits" box I am always building of "parts that might work well for a game". They had small sailboats, lighthouses, palm trees, insects, dolphins, crabs, turtles, all kinds of things in assortments. Here is one bag of the nautical assortment:

the nautical assortment came with 8 ships (2 different styles) 8 lighthouse (2 different styles which also would make great player pawns) 5 anchors and 4 suns. They are the perfect size! and with a base coat of flat black or white plastic spray primer and a little hand painting would make good prototype or one-off components.
here is a shot of some of the other parts:

Don't know if this will help anyone but figured it couldn't hurt.
btw, the packaging says it's distributed by Greenbrier International Inc. in Chesapeake, VA.

Very cool stuff, I looked around at the Dollar General here in North Texas and didn't see too much. Guess I'll have to look again, that'll teach me to just look in the "toy" aisle. =)

The boats look sweet, and as you mentioned, the lighthouses could easily be player pawns. I don't know abou the rest, but I'm sure they won't go to waste, and the boats are easily worth the doller you spent.
