No. 5

 Here is one of our new hooks from the store

We had a customer in a few weeks ago 
that brought this hook up to the counter to purchase.

No. 5

It was then, she shared a lovely story with us...


"No. 5
is for my mother," she said
"She lived in an orphanage in France
They didn't use their names,
they had numbers, and her's was
No. 5"

Isn't that the neatest story?


We loved it! 
We thought that the numbers would be great
for using for your kid's coat hooks -
first born #1, second #2...you get the picture

We guess numbers mean different things
 to people....and from now on we will
forever
 look at
No. 5
in a different way!

I definitely will look at numbers differently. We recently got the registration numbers for our boat and they were my husband's birth date! Very odd!

Love the hooks!

What a touching story. I always wanted two kids. So, I guess my number would be 2, for my teen sons who are kind, well mannered and a constant source of joy.

Have a great weekend, my friend.

The story in your store is nice.
But it's sad the French orphanage did not call the girls by name.

I was in a store today that had those hooks, but not the numbers I wanted. Just wondering if you might be able to provide your source for those or if I might be able to order them online from your store.

Best, Wendy
