I also like the fact that they're they're a nightmare to find.

Thanks, OJ -- I got these from my great-grandmother and I've been hording them through the years.Not hard to do -- there are a ridiculous number of pins in the box.

Joe -- you open the box and it's like it's empty. *grin* Of course, if you step on one....

If I'm honest I have several cards of hook and eye clothing fasteners of my grandmothers dating from the 40s and 50s I think. A couple of them mention ration coupons on the packaging. I don't even use them, I just hoard them because they're interesting (and my grandmother's).

Do you keep any other household goods like these?
