- Sep 3, 2001I found small, 1/2" or 3/8" brass rings at Calico Corner this past
weekend. They're not quite small enough, and they're a bit too thin
compared to things I've seen, but they come pretty close. I've done
the doublet sleeves so far and DB is very happy with the look.
I bought 60 of them at like 5 cents each. As I checked out, I asked
the cashier, "So, officially-like, what ARE these rings for?" She
told me a lot of stuff about poufy valances and things.
