I used to collect squished pennies everywhere I went as a kid – there’s something satisfying about putting a penny into one of those machines and cranking it into something new. In the back of my mind, I’d always wanted to do some type of project with them. And now I’ve finally decided to just go for it!
When I have enough pennies, I plan to either build or buy a coffee table (I may enlist the help of the Tech Shop
that’s opening in Pittsburgh soon that I’m now a member of), and cover it with the pennies I’ve collected. Somewhere on the table I want to inscribe the names of all the people who have helped. I would love to have your help in doing it and for that, I need pennies!
You can send pennies to:
PO Box 8232
Pittsburgh, PA 15217
If you give me an e-mail address and tell me how much it cost, I can paypal you the cost of the pennies and the postage. I also love to trade, the duplicate pennies that I can trade are listed here.
Go to this page for a list of penny machines near you. You never know where you might find one!
Thanks everyone, you all mean so much to me!
