          I bought starfish from ebay vendor worldwidewildlifeproducts
          SUGAR STARFISH 50 PC LOT 4"-6" STAR FISH for $40 plus shipping

          Here's what I plan to do with them, but using green and blue ribbons to denote meal choice.

          Side note: They stink!! I know they were once alive, but I thought when they cleaned and dried them, they lost their smell.. not so. I found some info from some knotties and will try soaking in alcohol or a bleach/fabric softener mix and then drying in the sun. They've been in the garage and outside for a few weeks with only a slight change. Not very appetizing to have a "sea" smell next to your plate.

            Angela - that is SO funny! mine STINK too! (really bad) I bought the white ones. I have kept them wrapped up in the box so I can transport them easily. I'm worried about the smell once I open up the box when I'm down there. Maybe I can leave them out on my balcony & I'll have to try the soaking method too...

              I would try to do something before getting down there.. otherwise everything else in the bag/box is going to stink. Even the foam peanuts they packed them in were gross! It's not as bad now that they've been airing out, but I'm afraid once I put them back in the box for shipping, it's going to be back to square one.

              I'm going to try to fix the problem next week. I'll let you know how it goes.. they did suggest anchoring down the sides of the starfish after soaking so they don't curl up. I would hate to waste all that money on nothing.

              I sprayed one with fabreeze, but lost track of it when moving them around.. I didn't want to stick my nose on all 50 to find it to see if it worked. :)

                  well, that was enough to sway me from wanting to use starfish! i have the most sensitive sniffer known to man and know exactly the smell you speak of. Would NOT be able to get over it!

                    Here are two starfish ideas I found:

                    I also found this idea, not starfish, and my MOH found some on the beach by her house yesterday and she said you have to let them dry out, bleach them, and then dip them in glue so they don't smell and are harder to break. Which may work for starfish too.
