Default Searching for a Specific Wood Screw

For the life of me, I cannot find this exact screw anywhere. Several years ago they were readily available at Lowes and Home Depot. I'm thinking they are no longer made. Happy to use another brand as long as they are:
* 10 x 2 1/2
* Philips head
* Gold in color

Any ideas??

Call Sheila at Quality Bolt and Screw in Geismar, LA

I bet she can help you find a screw that makes you happy.

She used to drop the Bolt part and answer the phone,
"Quality Screws, how can I help you?"

Some of us may have grown up since then, but not me.

My daughter in law sells for Grabber Tools and she said she could get them. They also have their own brand just like them. She is checking to see what quantity you have to buy.
