Netizens Cannot Brain Why This Malaysian Fashion Label Is Selling Safety Pins For RM10
A popular local clothing line recently launched some basic essentials for tudung-wearers.
The dUCk Group, a branch under local clothing line Fashion Valet, recently introduced these vital metal clips priced at RM10 for a packet of 50 pins
They come in three colours: silver, gold, and black.
According to an Instagram post by the Malaysian store, these pins were "highly requested" by their customers, who are also known as dUCkies.
So much so, that the company announced that they sold out their first batch of black pins and needed to replenish their stock.
Despite the popular demand, some netizens have not have been very impressed by this "expensive marketing scheme", saying that the pins can be bought at the pasar malam for a fraction of the price...

Well, if you do the math, they actually come up to 20 cents a piece which sounds like a less painful cost to bear
Guess where there is demand, there will be supply
Brb, gonna try to sell some bobby pins.
Funnily enough, these safety pins aren't as insanely priced as these other expensive pasar malam items:
