lapel pin collection - updatedWednesday, September 21, 2016
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!
