|$12.50 for four elastic bands at J Crew|
These stretchy elastic bands that my girlies and I frequently wear on our wrists
( and wear even more frequently in our hair )
are extremely popular AND extremely over-priced.
How over-priced became very clear when
I was wearing an elastic band while touring Britex Fabrics
and the guide pointed out that the exact same elastic was for sale…
$1.99 a yard.
I bought a yard each of four different colors
and each yard yielded 4 bands.
I cut the elastic,
girlie singed the edges so they would not fray,
and other girlie tied the ends into knots.
|The missing bands are already on our wrists and hair|
Within 5 minutes we had 16 stretchy elastic bands at a cost of 50 cents per band…
which still seems a little over-priced :)
