Wire Coat Hangers

clothes hangers;

Did you know that wire coat hangers can be used for much more than just hanging your coat?

One of our staff members Trevor, loves to use them for arts and crafts with his kids and family.

In fact, like the rest of our team’s closets, they’re found in practically every closet and other storage space in most homes.
