Now, this is a blast from the past. A few of you may know I used to work as a window dresser (visual merchandiser in modern parlance) at Cavendish House, AKA House of Fraser in Cheltenham. This hook is the type we used to use to hang all the sale signs and 'what not' from the ceiling. I spent many a 'happy' afternoon going up and down my ladder replacing a 10% sale sign for a 15% sale sign. Sigh. And I would always end up with a few of these in my placket at the end of the day, no use whatsoever, I should give them back.
