Vintage style clothes hangers in crystal cut plastic


Are you as interested in all the little details for your mid century home as I am? How about these plastic, crystal-cut hangers for your clothes closet? I’ve picked up many of these at estate sales, and I’m sure they have been around a long time. But, you can also still buy them new, and at reasonable prices. A four-pack of dress or shirt hangers is just $1.99, while two suit hangers with clips (like above) go for $2.29 at acehardwareoutlets.. Shop around online – I’ve also seen them in large packs that bring the unit prices down further.

    YES! It’s all I have! I worked at a vintage store and the owner only used vintage plastic hangers. I soon found my own. It’s taken almost 8 years but I finally have a vintage hanger for everything in my tiny, crowded, vintage closet.

    When I was a kid, we had little pink and blue plastic hangers (kid size) with cut-outs of circus clowns, seals, and elephants. Has anyone ever come across those in thrift shops or estate sales?

    Femme1 – My mom found some of these in her travels and gave them to me. There are all baby-sized – some are panted wood (blue and pink) with dogs and cats on them. Another set are pink and yellow plastic with bunnies… Hmmm, maybe this is a hint that she’s ready for some grandkids!

      Femme1 and Glamorlux – can you send me pics of these hangers? I’d love to feature them so that we can all be on the lookout. Hey, do I smell a new 2009 obsession? Yup!

    I love these! I already have a few – the ones I’ve been lucky enough to find 2 at a g-sale, 2 at a thrift. Since you posted this I went to the site and bought 4 doz., and a doz. of the suit type. I’m so glad you posted this! The other thing is that if you look for them at the regular Ace Hardware online store they cost 2 1/2 times as much. This is an outlet out of New York and the price is MUCH better. Thanks again for posting!

    Pam, I’m afraid those cute little hangers are long gone! I was born in 1954 and they dated from then; I’m sure in our many moves over the years, my mom got rid of them (along with my many Barbies, waaah!).

    I saw some of these plastic crystal hangers at Target in a package of 6 for $3.99. They are not on the website, of course, but I did indeed see them @ my local store – both the dress hangers and the suit hangers!

    I received the hangers as promised. They’re big, strong hangers. Shipping was very reasonable, (about $8) but yes, if I could have found them at Target I would have gotten them there. I might check Target for more. Still, I’m very glad to have them – thanks for the lead!
