I think if she can actually sell at those prices, kudos to her!

Sort of makes me laugh at all the customers I get that don't want to part with a 5 dollar bill!

I'll make ya some knockoffs for 6 bucks!

Hey look at it this way, SHIPPING IS FREE!!! Now that is a deal!

At first I was thinking *has to be a typo* until I looked to the side and they are all priced like that!

Some of her stuff is really cute, but too expensive for my budget. Did anyone notice the typo on her site? Under free shipping...look at the statement about small parts and not intended for "unsepervised" use. I know that is mean, but if you are going to charge those prices, you might want to hire a proof-reader for your webpage...lol. I am sure there is a typo in my post, now that I wrote that, but too tired to check!

I do have to give her kudos for being able to sell them at those prices! I wish I could!!

This is really cute though: http://www.faigie.com/1125/16/ParisCut.html
I would wear that in my hair in a heartbeat! My dd has several items it would go with too!!


Silly question, on some of her clippies, the ribbon is wider - is that 5/8" ribbon? I never thought of doing that, but love the look. Here is an example: http://www.faigie.com/1928/4/SweetandSpicyHairclip.html

I do LOVE the monkey though (someone else posted a pic). That is sooo cute. I want one!!

I really like a lot of her stuff...Can't afford it tho. :0)

I wonder how she'll be dealing with the lead laws, considering most of her stuff is embellished with swavs.

Wow... This is crazy! I looked over her clips and honestly, I'm not that impressed. I've seen loads better and more creative designs from many of the ladies here on this site.

I'll admit, I've paid $20 for hairclips for my daughter before, but they were made of an extremely luxurious ribbon I happen to know costs $4.00/yard, and the design itself was very unique and clever. But I would never, NEVER pay the prices listed on this lady's site. Kudos to her if she's selling them, but I guess I'm a bit picky and expect more creative designs for that price.

Just my two cents.
