I've searched everywhere I can think of (Target, Walmart, Kmart) and can't find one anywhere. Do you have to buy them online? And can you buy them in larger sizes (I hear the regular sized ones are too small to hold long hair)?
I get the impression that you are looking for an inexpensive banana clip.
France Luxe has Cascade clips which are banana clips.
Banana clips are very practical. My 2 cents!

You can't find them at Target, Walmart and Kmart?????
That's where I see them at, in with the hair brush, combs, headbands and barrettes. But those are too small for my hair and it's it's only APL but very thick and I have a LOT of it, so the Goody ones at the box stores pop apart in my hair.
ETA: I just typed in "Large Banana Clips" in yahoo search and this was either 1st or 2nd in the list- very easy to find them!

I just saw them the other day at Meijer, which is a regional version of a Super-Walmart. They were in amongst all the Goody accessories, however they were down low and out of the way -- all the "fancier" (more expensive) items were higher up, but the banana clips were on the very bottom row, tucked between some brushes and something else kind of obscure. They were sold in a multi-pack.
I also see them at my local Walgreens.
What everyone else said. CVS has them as well. You can also get one for thicker hair online at Ulta: link
I didn't know they still made these. I wore them back in grade school but they hurt!

I don't know if you are near one, but just the other day, I saw them at a "Ben Franklin" store.

Wow, I didn't know they still had Ben Franklin stores. I haven't seen one since I was a kid. That brings back good memories!
I would just keep an eye out for them, pharmacies, kmarts, walmarts, meijers, even grocery stores might have them. I always find myself in the hair section of every store......just so I know what is available in the area lol. Really. Not really buying, just looking.........really!
