Back in October of last year I shared photos of my lapel pin collection which has only continued to grow since then. Even if you don’t remember that post, you’ve probably noticed in my what I wore
posts that I kind of have a thing for accessories. Fun necklaces, rings,
brooches, lapel pins, etc. I love them all. I 100% do not abide by the
quote “before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one
accessory.” I basically do the opposite. Before leaving the house I
usually look in the mirror to make sure I have at least a few eye
catching things on.
Lapel pins are super hip right now. I’m
ashamed to admit that I’m usually kind of sour when things I love become
super popular but there are so many independent companies out there
making them and you can find one for just about any interest you may
have. Seriously, I have one about beach combing! I’ve welcomed this boom with open arms. I love finding new brands
with lapel pins. They’re small, and usually cost less then $10 a piece
so they’re easy to collect. They’re also a really awesome way to support
creative folks and their businesses (…at least that’s how I justify having so many!)
A few weeks back I upgraded the bulletin board I display my pins on. The old one, a three dollar score from the Target dollar spot, finally ran out of room. I was able to find something with a little bit more space in the same place, the dollar section at Target! You just can’t beat it for three bucks! My new one holds a bunch more, and displays them beautifully.
It would be crazy hard to link to where each of the pins are from so
instead I’ll link to some of the folks I own pins from and then you can
blame me when you blow all your money on pins!
