The Little Things: Paper Clips

alphabet paper clips

Usually I prefer staples to paper clips - it's too easy for the clips to snag other papers. But sometimes they are handy - and they don't have to be the boring clips we're all use to. They could be the alphabet paper clips from Stephen Reed. [via Apartment Therapy]

Or perhaps you'd prefer these colorful ones from Modial Lus, sold by Sweet Bella (located in New York).

And then there are the Midori animal paper clips: crocodiles, ducks, rabbits, cows, whales, pigs, penguins, elephants, hippos, horses, tortoises, dolphins, cats, dogs, birds and squirrels. (And there are also bicycles, motor bikes, cars and airplanes.) The best pictures and most complete offerings are at Geek Stuff 4 U (with prices in yen) and Tokyo Pen Shop (with prices in dollars). Update on Aug. 3, 2015: Geek Stuff 4 U has disappeared.

Congratulations on the well deserved nomination! I have a set of red swirl paper clips that I absolutely love. Makes the task of categorizing paperwork a little more cheerful. Heading over to vote. Good luck!
