So the million dollar question is: do people still use clothespins? Used to be that laundry was hung outside. It was more economical than running the dryer, saved time (you could wash load after load without having to wait for the previous load to dry in the dryer), and made clothes – especially sheets and towels – smell wonderful.

winds the hair, and they both makes the clothes. They’ve been making their dolls since 1973 when they saw something similar in a magazine. Since then, Clarence has created wired joints (some other dolls use rubber bands), which are Linda’s favorite kinds of doll. They use an average of 30,000 clothespins each year to make their dolls, which include an array of styles and colors.
