Pin it up! (I mean the hair)

I reckon I had posted quite a few lip-products reviews, (and it's getting a bit tedious and boring writing the same type of reviews a few days straight), I would just put something else here just for a little change and a little refreshment: Some hairpins given to me by a friend, two of them are actually vintage!
First there is a gold plated tiny ornamental one pin with a little colored glass bead.
A bigger, silver colored (I think this is silver-plated brass) hairpin with floral design.The detail and the silver color actually work pretty well with dark hair.
Lastly, here is a tough (it can hold my hair quite securely just by itself) one made of Vietnamese ox horn.

Anyway, I hope some of you find the short post interesting, reviews (of mainly lip products) will resume shortly :)

    I am sorry but since I received it as a gift I don't know where to buy the exact one. But as a store I reviewed earlier Kimson handicraft, also carries hairpin in similar styles.

    I personally haven't shopped there (and I usually don't buy horn combs online, just FYI) so I don't know what is their shipping or customer services is really like. But anyway, you can do some Google shopping search and you may be able to find something.
