The Look For Less: Violette's Colorful Safety Pins

The Look For Less: Violette's Colorful Safety Pins

When I first learned about the existence of colorful safety pins, I jumped for joy so high that had I been holding a safety pin in my hand, I would have poked my eye out. No, but seriously, besides it being pretty, it's also really useful. What I didn't jump for joy over is the price ($14 for 36 pins). Why pay more when you can pay less?


To see the look for less,

I was perusing the aisles of Walgreens when I discovered these Singer Metallic-Coated Safety Pins ($3 for $35). Imagine my excitement. I know it's limited to red, green, blue, and purple, and it doesn't have the fancy schmancy pin-up girl container, but considering the low price, that's A-OK.

UH! you are paying for the super cute carrying case here!! i know b/c i bought them very recently:) I purchased the "little black dress" ones that have all black small safety pins in them, in the hottest little tin that i toss in either my purse or my tip bucket when i'm going to work. It's amazing and i'll never look back. As a thank you, b/c they are a new store, they also sent me a very special gift...the tin pictured above with the colored safety pins in them too. And then all you have to do is just replenish with cheaper safety pins once they are gone, but my problem was having a case to put the ones you buy in the store for. And not only are the tins the perfect size, and super cute, but they also say "Pin-ups" on them so they get others attention b/c it's so unique but you also don't have to remember what is in the case months after if you don't use it that often. sorry but i disagree with you sugar on this one. it was $$ WELL spent.

Or you could just get some plain safety pins and spray paint them any color you want...

Oh, and I think the Walgreen's ones would do just as good a job for a lot less $$.

Cute, but that is a ridiculous price for safety pins!
