As a tween, if you were into cute and fun accessories or even just wanted to get your ears pierced, you probably went to Claire's. And even if you haven't stepped foot in the store you visited every single time you went to the mall (guilty) in the last decade or so, you may be surprised to learn that there are some pretty cool things you can still buy at Claire's. Because even though you may no longer be interested in having 10 different pairs of colorful earrings all shaped like dice, sporting hair chopsticks with feathers attached to one end, or collecting as many kooky keychains as you can afford with your weekly allowance, there are still some hidden gems that, for nostalgia's sake or not, you'll be totally into.
I mean, I'll at least always have a spot in my heart for Hello Kitty lunch boxes and chunky glitter pens. There are just some things you never outgrow. So if you need a little extra cuteness back in your life, or even some things you might never have thought would be at your old stomping ground, here are 12 totally cool things you can still find at Claire's.
