New York can be a lonely place, for people and even for clothing. Blame the decline of the traditional family, the Internet, or whatever, but gloves have a lot of trouble staying together.
Now two Canadian Christmas-tree-sellers on West End Avenue have found a way for gloves to find their matches again. The man and woman created a tree full of single gloves in front of CVS on 70th street and West End Avenue where you can place missing gloves, or look for the one that got away. The sign says “New York’s Single Glove Club, Will You Find Your Match?”
Sunny Mindel, who sent us the photos, said the tree is already making some successful matches: “While I was standing there, a woman came buy and found the match to a glove that had been left in her apartment by a guest.”
Now if only someone could set up a sock matching system, I’d put them up for the Nobel Prize.
