Play Set - Day 1 Shopping for Materials

The Valley Christian High School play this spring is an audience participation murder mystery.  It will be set in the mid 19th century chronologically but the set is a turn of the century, aged manor.

Today I went to Stardust Building Supplies in Mesa, Arizona with VCHS custodian, Sean.  (yeah, yeah he happens to be my kid, but he is an official staff member)  Stardust sells all sorts of recycled building materials and other cool stuff.  Doors, appliances, cabinets, lighting, hardware, windows, fireplaces, paint, tile and more.  We even saw a nice set of truck rims there today.  You just never know.

They had a lot of blingy things there and my ADD was just going bonkers.  Sean had to get me to re-focus several times.  I'll have to go back when I can just spend some quality time digging through all the cool stuff

We found a set of french doors that are 5' wide and a single french door for the Solarium and Garden entrances to the set, as well as a brass sconce and a chandelier.  All together the items would have cost us $125.00  After speaking with Todd, the manager, they generously offered to lend us the said items, with the option for the school to buy them should Sheri decide to keep them.  Wow!  They were so willing to help us out I just had to give them a plug here. 

Thanks to Kenny and Gary who set everything aside for us so Sean can pick it up with his peek-up truck.

Thanks again Stardust.  We look forward to showing you how we have incorporated the supplies.
