Clipboard with Ephemera

With simple but effective construction, the classic clipboard is one of those products that was designed to withstand the test of time. We recently acquired a collection of oh-so-good vintage clipboards — those same sturdy fiberboard and metal clipboards that your gym teacher used to carry back in the day or that Nanna hung from a nail in the shed to take notes in the garden. 

Each vintage clipboard comes with its own delightful signs of years of functional, dependable use. Some may bear the marks of the myriad pens and pencils that were tucked under their clips over the years, others may have shadows of stickers or labels that have long since fallen off. Hardware could have a little patina here and there. 

To make sure your clipboard is in good working order before we send it to you, we'll tuck a selection of vintage ephemera under the clip. It could be anything from hand-typed receipts, to crisp envelopes, post cards, carbon paper, or looseleaf. We hope you'll enjoy these nostalgic treasures of everyday life as much as we have enjoyed selecting them for you!
