Considering how many barrettes my daughter trades away to her friends on the playground, I don’t often get excited about one-of-a-kind hair accessories. Not because I wouldn’t like to see them in my little girl’s hair, but because I can’t afford to let them become prized possessions in another kid’s collection.
But I’d make an exception for these vintage Japanese barrettes at Craftsbury Kids. Japanese silk kimonos are sewn into the shape of plum blossoms, making them feminine without being cutesie. Each one is uniquely hand-crafted, so the price is more than your average little girl’s hair accessory. But they’re the perfect finishing touch for special occasions.
Like the ones with no other conniving, barrette-trading little con artist girls around. -Julie
