The Look for Less: Urban Outfitters vs. Target

Thank you to reader Cotton Candy for bringing this one to my attention. Today we're comparing two sets of tiny, delicate string lights. I've never seen anything like this before! The two pics on the top show Urban Outfitters version (called "Firefly Lights") that run $20 for a 7.5' long string. And the Target version shown on the bottom (dubbed "Starry Lights" and found in the Dollar Spot section) run only $3 for a 7' string. Granted, Target's set is on a bit shorter string, but that's still a savings of $17 over the Urban Outfitters version. Both require two AA batteries, so the only other difference is the fact that Urban Outfitters' lights come on gold-colored wire whereas the Target ones are on silver wire.
