Purse charms are everything. I love the tassels, the fur poms, and of course, all of the cute things we make at blingsting that clip to the outside of your bag. One of the things I thought could really use some updating on the traditional keychain pepper spray is the fact that a keychain only gets you so far. One way we thought we’d make pepper spray keychains better was to make them more accessible, aka purse charms. Like most girls, my keys are buried at the bottom of my big a*s bag, and finding them takes a full on effort to dig through everything else I am carrying with me. Plus, if I go running and want to take my pepper spray, I am definitely not sitting there and trying to get it on and off of my keychain each and every time. So there are lots of reasons why changing around the keychain pepper spray makes sense. And it’s obvious to me that the men who started selling pepper spray way back when never thought about these very critical things. Once again, pepper spray does no good if you don’t have it in your hand.
Mine is always clipped to the hardware of my bag, and so there is no digging, no frustration, no forgetting exactly where my blingsting is at all times. Plus, it looks super-cute and out in the open for the world to see so I get TONS of compliments. It also serves as a really good reminder to any suspicious character who might be checking me out to just not go there.
Our customers totally understand this, as they love putting their cute purse / pepper spray situations on social media!
And the good news is, if you really want it on your keychain, then you can still put it on your keychain.
