I hadn't given it much thought until I was asked to write this article, but I have to admit, I really like wearing pins. Not big gaudy pins or anything, just ones that will catch your eye and say, "Hey, this gal likes...". A few years ago my friend and I were visiting some bazaars around the holidays and found a couple of really cute pins. Rheindeer to be exact...
On my lapel right now, and since 1991 I have a metal flag pin with a yellow ribbon below because I never forget our military. I have a pin with the Marine Corps emblem on it from when our son was in the military. Right now, I'm looking at the PinMart website and they have over a 1000 pins in their topic categories for everything from awareness to animals, fun and fashion, and sports to volunteers. Of course, those six are just a few of the many to choose from. I was surprised at the variety.
It occurs to me that some of these pins would make great little stocking stuffers or hostess gifts in the coming months. If you're looking for a specific pin and don't see it in stock, no worries, they can make it for you at PinMart. They have lanyards too!
