Cement Push Pins Stick With Stone, Are Anything But Tacky


Sticks and stones might break my bones but Japanese cement push pins from Japan Trend Shop will never hurt you... unless, of course, you're holding them backwards when pinning. Dropping one on your toe is also not recommended; random acupuncture not being recognized as a viable therapy by the AMA. But we digress...




These innovative “rock stars” of the push pin universe were designed by Nobuhiro Sato and are made in Japan. Choose from two types: Smooth, which displays a fine-grained sidewalk or poolside texture, or Pebbles, a contrasting aggregate mixture that leans more towards the concrete side of the cement scale. Er, cement scale not included.




Each purposely imperfect, cast-style pin measures 14 x 14 x 20mm (0.6 x 0.6 x 0.8") and sports a half-inch steel spike on the business end. Unlike standard, run-of-the-mill, dollar store level plastic push pins, they won't shatter when used on particularly unyielding walls. At least, that's what Wilma Flintstone tells us.




These Japanese cement push pins will add a little designer chic to any home or commercial office, even if your office is in the back of a dollar store. Purchasers who plunk down a hefty $20 plus shipping for a set will receive a half-dozen of the stony stick-em-ups packed in a slate gray tinted custom box/holder. Order your cement push pins from Japan Trend Shop.
