I am slowly putting back items that I know I will wear and getting rid of items that I didn't even know I still had. During this process I amassed hangers, hanger's from the cleaners, some with tubes attached to the wire while others were just wire, plastic hangers, slim flat flocked space saver hangers, and some wooden hangers. There certainly is many different styles of hangers.
I was surprised to find so many different styles of vintage wooden hangers in my pile.
Flat and round wood crescent shaped hangers, boomerang hangers, pant hangers with wooden rods, metal rods and metal rods that prevent pants from slipping off the hanger.
A few had advertising some engraved into the wood others stamped.
It is rumored that the third President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson invented the hanger.
The one thing that sticks in my mind about hangers is Joan Crawford in Mommy Dearest screaming, "No more wire hangers."
Thank goodness these are wooden so I can keep them.
