Check out some of our cool finds!
We found tons of interesting items that would fit into the realm of home decor. There is a whole section of cheap rocks, fossils, and stones (perfect for centerpieces or flower arrangements, on left). Of course, as a science store, they are obligated to carry anatomical posters (on right).
One of our favorite things about AS&S is their containers. They carry glass, plastic, ceramic.... Whether you need a travel-sized shampoo bottle or a jar for your "moonshine," they've got it here and it'll cost a whole lot less than your neighborhood pharmacy (on left).
If tinkering is your thing, AS&S is full of stuff for gear heads. Besides the casters and motory parts seen above, AS&S carries odds and ends to take care of most electrical, plumbing, or bike-without-a-chain situations.
Besides the containers, our second favorite thing about American Science & Surplus is their randomness. We spotted sausage packaging tape ($5/roll), the cutest hot pink jewelery box, these "Russian action figures" (on left), and a whole box of decorative birds for only $3.25.
