Item details

Vintage from the 1950s

=========================
50 or 100 C-Clips
3/8 x 3/4 in
10 x 19 mm
They are very thin. Somewhat like thick cardstock.
------------------------

Okay, so now you're wondering what the heck are metal C-Clips? I got these when an old, local dry cleaner closed down (read more here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/175970209). To be honest, I'm not 100% sure of their original function, but I believe they are from the late 1950's and went around the necks of wire coat hangers to keep several clothing pieces together.

They are so much fun to use in arts and crafts projects. Picture #3 shows two ATCs made by Joanne Ross and pic #4 shows an ATC created by Christina Lazar-Schuller using both a C-Clip and one of our vintage dry cleaning tickets (https://www.etsy.com/listing/175970209).

The stripes on some of the metal clips are simply from the scanning process. They are not actually there.

Note: Canadian and American dimes are the same size.
