Highlights of my pin collection

 

I enjoy collecting frivolous things and I have a great weakness for pins! So here are some of my favourites from my collection.

Troops on Print

 The amazing person behind this shop is my best friend so I have her pins from since she first started. This is one of them! This had started many conversations too because it's so cute!

 I found out about oodon through a local flea and started by buying stickers from him. I was so happy when he decided to make pins so I bought this cute no face bubble tea pin from him too!

 Many people know how much I love sloths, so when I had discovered this shop, I went crazy and bought every sloth pin she has.

 When I saw this pin while browsing on Etsy, I knew I had to get it because it represents a huge part of me!

Pinkoi

Pinkoi is somewhat the Asian version of Etsy, an online marketplace for artists to sell their products. There are so many  nice things there that I find it difficult to resist the pins they have.

 This Mount Fuji pin is from  Green's Room  in Taiwan and I love how it is painted and coloured!

From local fleas

 I had gotten this from  thepottershand.co  and it looks so real! Many people who have seen this asked me if this is real or if it is soft too.

 Got these from  nandecolle  who used to make these but has now shifted her focus to other products! You can check them out still but she doesn’t sell these anymore!

 I like these pins from  anne.briel  because they are so relevant to me. I met her at a flea at Westwood Secondary while helping troopsonprint and she’s very nice in person too!

From other countries

 Got this in an expensive looking shop in Kumamoto to help raise funds for repairs for the damage done from the Kumamoto earthquake. I was really touched because this is an expensive shop and they treated me so nicely when this pin was only ¥500!
