Steel Bookends, Non-Skid
Sometimes it's hard to find just plain, old-fashioned bookends - well, here they are! These steel bookends with a non-skid base come in two heights - 5" and 9". When I was a kid, these only came in gray, but now you have a choice of black, brown, gray, and tan.Use them to prop up those unruly books on your shelf.
Another nifty idea for those of you who do cross stitch or plastic canvas. My son received a set of these as a graduation gift - his initials were sewn onto plastic canvas, two pieces of canvas sewn together on the top and sides (like a pocket), and the canvas slid down over the bookends. He has a set of monogrammed bookends! You don't have to monogram, just do a pretty design, and you have an inexpensive gift idea for crafters.
