Tiny little clothes pins [Zurich]

I have this project in mind involving photos, but I need tiny little clothes pins that are often used for dolls' clothing or playing house. I looked at a kid's store in Zurich near Bahnhofstrasse, but apparently kids nowadays don't play laundry like I did when I was little.

I need ones with a smooth surface, so I don't tear up photos. If anyone has some or has a clue where I can find this around town, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks.

Re: Tiny little clothes pins [Zurich]

I saw some the other day in Papyrus in Basel, but they have a couple of shops in Zurich, where they are called Waser. The Basel shop is quite big, covering 5 floors, and so they have a 'craft' section which is where I saw them. Here are the Zurich addresses anyway:
Oberdorfstrasse 24 8001 Zürich
Einkaufszentrum Glatt, Obere Verkaufsebene, 8301 Glattzentrum

Otherwise any other craft shop should have them.

Re: Tiny little clothes pins [Zurich]

Found these with a google search, if I knew what they're called in German I could have found more I'm sure.

Re: Tiny little clothes pins [Zurich]

They sell them in the office shop in Zugerland, Steinhausen for CHF 4 for 30. On the packet they are called "Holzklammern". I use them for hanging cards up on wires. Office World I think the store is called. Perhaps there is a store closer to you.

Re: Tiny little clothes pins [Zurich]

I just saw some at Coop city in Letzipark on Friday. They are in the craft section. I would guess they have them in the Coop city downtown too. They came in small packets with several clothespins in one color in each packet. I didn't look at the price though.
