Do You Still Own Bobby Pins?
Oh my goodness I found zillions of them when I cleaned a drawer out. Only get in there a few times a year to get my hair dryer out. Went all the way to the bottom of the drawer and found a plastic bag full of bobby pins. Guess I thought I might need them some day. In the 50's and 60's I did need them. I set my daughters long hair on pin curls and mine too. I set (we called it rolling hair) older neighbor ladies hair at times too. I think it was the 70's when up-dos were popular and that took quite a few bobby pins. Then there was the hair-do for my daughters that I invented, it took bobby pins. I named it The Spider. I pulled their long hair into a pony tail and then separated into thick strands and pinned them all around their head with pin curls. To hide the bobby pins I pinned a small bow or hair clasp to match their dress over the pin curl. Wish I had taken a picture. They were cuter then they sound. Did I give those bobby pins to Good Will? No, probably no one wants them. Wonder if they will ever come back in fashion. Well I did transfer them from the old plastic bag into a little case and back into the drawer they went for someone to dispose of someday. Anyway I got bobby pins in case I ever need them.
