Vintage Hangers

One of my new favorite things to collect.....vintage hangers.
I really can't explain the attraction....I just love how they look!

I want to incorporate the hangers in my bedroom and bath redo.  I'm not exactly sure how it is going to look but these are some of the hangers that will go into the display.
I have several of these advertising hangers....they are some of my favorites.
This last hanger is my very favorite (at the moment).
Love this numbered tag on the top.
I haven't made any progress on my bedroom project yet......I'm over thinking the project and just need to settle on a color and get started!  I'll keep you posted.

  2. "playground device company" how fun is that! I like vintage wooden hangers and use them for clothes actually. I also have picked up two vintage-y paper wrapped dry cleaners hangars that are on display in my laundry room. Kelly

  4. I remember my parents had a lot of wooden advertisement hangers. One day I need to go through my parents garage with my sister to see all the treasures stored there.

  5. I have a large collection too!
    I like the hand made ones covered in vintage fabrics and made by home makers many years ago!
    In Australia there arn't many advertising ones .
    Glad your blogging again!

  21. I adore vintage hangers, don't find them very often, but snatch them up when I do!

  22. Oh boy, I have a closet full of hangers we have picked up on our travels...can't wait to see what you come up with! For now we use them as displays for the jewelry at shows...

    ReplyDelete
  23. I had no idea there were that many types of vintage hangers! Can't wait to see how you incorporate them in the room.

  24. Wow. you have really cool hangers!!

    I know all about over thinking things, and color seems to be the worst for me!

    here is a thought:
    if it is causing you stress or anxiety to decide on a color, why not just change some simple things for now....and take on the BIG project later.
    When the time is better, it will be easier to decide.
    lovin' ya' along the way.

  25. What a great collection! I took 2 of my advertising hangers and hung them from simple iron hooks in my bathroom and use them to hang hand towels. I also mounted 3 vintage door knobs with their plates to the wall and use them to hang our bath towels. I love how they look and guests always comment on them. Have fun creating your new look!

  35. What an amazing array of hangers you've gathered! I hoard vintage hotel hangers and if I find Tulsa related hangers then it becomes my duty to buy and hang onto :) forever!

  36. What a collection you have! Some of those I have never seen.

  37. Love your collection. I have a few that are near and dear to my heart. I have one of my great-grandmother's dress (that she made) hanging on one hanger, a dress from my mother's childhood on another, and my deceased father-in-law's high school sweater on yet another one.

    I look forward to seeing what you do with yours.
