Rated 5 out of 5 by Selectiveshopper2 What a great accent!
These little whimsical bee tacks nicely accent pictures of my kids and Grandkids on the cork board. Quality is good both with cast metal and the detail. People take a second look and make a comment about the bee tacks. Thinking of purchasing additional set.

These are just as practical and useful as plain tacks, but also beautiful, making them a decoration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JMAMOM Beautiful and functional too!
The set of 12 Bee tacks was more beautiful in person than on the website. Not only are they beautifully cast but they are amazingly sturdy and useful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PetiteMaison Great product, but too small!!
I got the Fleur De Lis ones and the craftmanship is amazing, they are so beautiful. The only problem is that they are too small. If I am using this beautiful tacks I want them to be part of my board and really you can not appreciate them fully even from an average distance from my beautiful board, much less from far. That is my only complaint, but if you want small tacks almost tiny then they are for you!!!

I ordered these as a splurg when I got my cork bulletin board. I thought my husband would laugh at the bees and instead he loves them and asked me to order more. They are the perfect compliment to my beautiful Ballard bulletin board.

I've wanted these for a long time and finally received them as stocking stuffers at Christmas. They're so cute. Although the eiffel towers are a little small they are still adorable. Both sets have great detail. So glad these cute but practical little tacks are mine now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jeparlefrancais Tres mignon!
The tacks are cute and feel solid enough to hold up to regular use. Some of the legs on the Eiffel Towers are not straight. Perhaps it was done intentionally to give them an older look. Regardless, both styles are very cute and look great on the wall.

I am using these French chevron tacks with my small burlap/nail head message board. Very chic! Really dresses up my office area. Now, if I could just keep the desktop clean.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by sarahgirl Beautiful design, sturdy, great!
Great designs.. very detailed and intriquite. I purchased both the fleur-de-lis and eiffel tower push pins about a year ago. I have had no problems with it breaking off in the cork or being bent--they are very sturdy. Every client or visitor in my office comments on how charming they are. The gold reflects well off the tan corkboard. My only advice would be that the Eiffel tower pins hurt your finger slightly when you push on the bumpy details to stick it. The fleur is flat and much easier to push in.
Have my eye on the bee as well.. fantastic finds!

I absolutely love the brass bee tacks. They are so much nicer than standard tacks. They make my cork board much more stylish and they are very good quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Thatsyourcolor more beautiful than practical
I ordered both the fleur de lis and Eifle Tower designs. They look beautiful but were difficult to pull out and put into the bulletin board due to small size and shape. The edges of the fleur de lis especially are kind of pointy and flat, making it uncomfortable to grab. You have to get your finger nail under it to pull it out. Thicker, rounder edges would have been better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by manders My Bee thumb tacks turned out to "bee" a perfect gift!!
My parents are hobby bee keepers. My mom's birthday was close and she loves anything with honey bees. My shipment came quickly and I thought they looked just like the photo in my catalog and online. My Mom loved the thumb tacks! She is also a professional photographer and displays some small photos in her office on a cork board. She said that she even ordered more because they looked so beautiful among all of her photos. I will certainly order again from Ballard...such great quality, from furniture and decor down to thumbtacks in the shape of a bee!!!

I purchased these to go with the burlap message board and could not be happier. They are durable and adorable. I got the fleur de lis and the bees. The fleur de lis are petite and the bees are a bit larger. Very nice combination. They hold all my notes and photos without any problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Limaan This product is a lot smaller than it looks onlne.
Love the tacks; however, they are really small. Not large enough to hold anything more than a sheet of paper or a small post card.

Rated 5 out of 5 by newbride Really charming
I have the Madison Corkboard from Ballard, and it's so pretty that I wanted some nice push pins to go along with it. I ordered both the bees and the fleur de lis style. I really love the bees; they are so charming and fit in perfectly with my room that has a lot of green and floral patterns in it. The fleur de lis are nice too, but a little smaller than I was expecting. These are well constructed pins and strong and deep enough to hold heavy papers. They look beautiful on my new bulletin board. I would definitely recommend them.

The depth of the pins is a bit too long for the depth of the cork board I ordered to go along with them. So my papers do not rest snugly against the board. But they are fun and beautiful!
