There are no marbles to be had in Monterey. Not at Target, Walmart, Dollar Tree, Michael's. Granted, I didn't venture into the independent toy stores, figuring I wouldn't want to spend what they were asking, assuming they were even asking. I wanted some inexpensive ones for practice during auditions. To see how many I would want.
As it turned out, most of the actors I wanted to
audition flaked out, so I cancelled aforementioned auditions. I'm going
to use actors I know and trust and who will have fun on this project.
yellow marbles wasn't as simple as I had imagined, either. Google
"yellow marbles" and you get marbles with yellow in them, but not
necessarily solid yellow ones, and they might be vintage marbles that
cost more than I want to spend.
I've ordered a few individual marbles from Marbles Marbles! and several bags from MegaGlass. In both cases shipping is (a good deal) more than the cost of the actual products.
And, because I can, I'm including this link to absolutely gorgeous images of marbles, nay, glass art by PyreXions.
