Bringing Brooches Back
I thought I’d amplify my own hustle today. I’ve been adding all kinds of vintage jewels to the Gracious Good Etsy shop, including these unique pins. I really want to make wearing brooches a thing again. So much so that I’m setting some unique pieces that I’ve beardimg free.
They all represent different collecting obsessions that I have gone through: Like the creativity of cold enamelled WWII-era pot metal pins, the reversed carved rose no doubt created as part of a kit sold to encourage cottage industry, or the cheap celluloid depression-era cameo created during a different time of shortages and inflation.
I also encourage supporting vintage sellers (not just me) because it helps reduce the amount of things in the world which is good for the environment, but it also helps support the hustle of small businesses thus reducing the impact megalithic, union-busting, underpaying corporations have on our existence.
