Getting rid of woven wood blinds?

We have decided not to go with the pleated shades in our 310, and found some blinds that I can modify to work. The woven blinds we took out had nylon tabs with a piece that moves in the track against the wall. These seem to break, but I have come up with something that will replace them.

If anyone is planning to get rid of their wovens, we would be grateful to have the tabs (and traveler pieces if they didn't break taking them down). I just cut ours away slat and all and would clean them up here. Of course we'd reimburse postage. They should mail pretty easily in a bubble padded manila envelope.

Feel free to PM if you have some you'd part with. Thanks!

Can you post a photo of the tabs you are looking for? I may have a source for you but ned to make sure they are the right ones or that they will work. If you could take a photo with one next to a ruler that would really help!
