Is there a market for these? I've ended up with 50 of them, still in their packages.

Does anyone use these? Some are in beautiful colors.

I am wondering whether (and if so where) to donate them or sell them.

Are they the type used for dresses before nylon zips? If they are dress weight aluminum (?) (not the heavy brass used for jeans zips) I would certainly like to see some photos. I have friend who's recycle shop has lot's of stock from a vintage place that closed down. There has already been 1 zip to replace for 1940's cream lace dress and I had trouble finding correct colour / length for her to maintain the authentic 'vintage' label.. Can you let me know please? Thank you
Rita

I like the metal zippers over the plastic. I have a supply of long ones which I use and then cut off the excess. I really like them for men's trousers to replace the broken zippers.
