I was recently looking for those teensy tiny rare earth magnets, and I found some at Radio Shack of all places. But in my search I came across this variety of magnets at Lee Valley Hardware (they of the many glass topped containers as usually seen for wedding favor containers). This pin and needle retriever looks very handy, as does most of the stuff on this page. The magnetic parts tray reminds me of something I saw on Martha a while ago – magnetic pin dish. I saw something like these on sale at a quilt show recently, they were pretty expensive considering.
