It has recently come to our attention that safety pins, the accoutrement of the moment and a symbol of solidarity with marginalized groups, can be found for less than $1,000. And sometimes, they even come not attached to Gucci sneakers. You just have to know where to look.
One top stylist we consulted suggested an insider tip: “a little place called Duane Reade.” Consider us schooled. We did some digging and found a few other under-the-radar spots you can get your own. But buyer beware: These won’t come embellished with pavé diamonds, unfortunately. Once you’ve selected your favorite, you can feel free to give the $999.90 you saved to one of these places.
