Skeleton keys?

Anyone know where I can get skeleton keys?? Either ones that look old or ones that I can make look old. I'm really debating about changing my decoration idea if adding the keys won't cost too much.

    I've found a few digging through stuff at flea markets (Leesport Farmers Market, for example). I've checked pretty much every antique shop in the area without any luck. I think eBay is your best bet.

    Here's a cheap lot ...hopefully, the price will stay low.

    Michael's have some not sure how much they were but I remember seeing them there (in the jewelry section).  I would suggest flea markets.  Not sure where you are in Central PA but Saturday's market has some.  They have a whole bunch of stuff.

    As soon as it is nice go to Saturday's Market in the Harrisburg/Hummelstown area. I saw hundreds of them there--cheap. And you can easily negotiate price if you are buying in bulk. There is also Antique Marketplace on Bosler Ave. in Lemoyne and Building Character on the 300 block of North Queen Street in Lancaster. I promise, I've seen them at all three places! Good luck!

    I wouldn't count on finding them for less than $1 a piece. I love flea markets & antique stores & checked all of the places I normally find things at reasonable prices. I ended up buying the skeleton keys for my reception in bulk lots on ebay.
