As featured on Etsy Lush. Get gorgeously geeky and hold your fringe out of your eyes at the same time! Our funky 3/4" Dewey Decimal charms have been securely attached to 2" silver bobby pins, perfect in singles or pairs! I will select the numbers for you, and will include the cards the numbers was cut from so you know what books you're "wearing."

Very cool gift for the librarian, bibliophile, or geek in your life! Awesome gifts for new graduates of MLS and MLIS programs! All our library catalog cards are vintage, many from mid-century.

This listing is for a PAIR (2) of bobby pins. The numbers you receive will be different from the ones pictured here as they are ready-to-ship, but you can be sure they'll have the same well read appeal. For an additional $3 - you can pick the (general) NON-fiction subject, like art, math, history, or science, and I will select the book/number for you, and will include the card the numbers were cut from so you know what book you're "wearing." I will invoice you via Paypal for the difference.

FYI - your number will differ from this but for the curious, the 809.1 Os7w is a book about women writers. The last photo shows the card this pin was made with - your hair pin will come with it's card too!

I use a water resistant epoxy, but since one element of these hair pins is paper, you should remove them before bathing or swimming.

Just need one of these beauties?
