N scale filigree - give sources

Where do you guys look for tiny architectural panel filigree?
Give me unique sources if you have them.

For instance I thought of casting the back of a dime?

Does the doll house industry have such things?

Here are examples of what I'm looking for.

Take a look at Krestel Designs, a British company, they make a ton of etched products and may have something you desire. Worst case you could create an etched fret, and secure it to plastic stock.

 ;) I doubt that the US doll house industry has anything in the correct scale for n-scale.
They tend to model 1" = 1'

Take a stroll through your local party store and have a look at stuff like plastic dinnerware, cake decorations, throw-away tiaras, and other items that may have useful bits of filigree.

I would think something could be done with a vinyl cutter.

I always start at the Dollar Tree in the party department.  There's a lot of stuff here at the Restore, too... Lots of old decorative switchplates, etc. etc.
