WATCH Starting With a Paper Clip and Trading Up at the Democratic Convention

What do you get at the Democratic National Convention when all you have is a paper clip?

ABC News found out this week, by starting with a blue paper clip and trading up for different items with DNC-goers during its four-day run in Philadelphia. The same game was played at the RNC last week in Cleveland.

Multiple swaps were made, from a portable phone charger to red, white and blue-striped sunglasses. Find out what ABC News ended up with by watching the video above.
