How to Wear a Vintage Brooch or Pin

I collect lots of vintage brooches and pins, from the 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s.  Don't think that brooches are just something your granny puts on her coat, sweater or scarf when she's feeling fancy!  Although, those are all very stylish ways to add a little vintage charm to your day very simply.

But here are a few other ways you can wear a vintage brooch that perhaps you haven't thought of yet...

* on a hat
* on a purse
* on the cuff of your jeans
*on the collar of...anything!
*paired with other brooches, on any piece of clothing- the more the merrier!
*on a pillow
*on a headband
*on a belt
*on a dog collar

The possibilities are endless, really!

I have vintage pins available in the Resparkable Vintage Etsy shop... most of these (and a few others!) are listed, or will be soon.  If you see something you like, but don't see it in the shop, just let me know! All of them are for sale, whether they are listed here or there.
