A Little Pin That Could Burst Your Bubble

A work of art. The water, the detail, the way the varnish is captured

Yesterday I got into a conversation with some co workers and the discussion of finding gifts for your loved ones is an anxiety trigger, but of course once you find that perfect gift, it can be so much fun. I mean how do you find a gift for someone that has just about anything they need, want, whatever.

For size

Forget looking online. Forget the stores. It’s all new stuff that can be found year around. BUT, every now and then a perfect little something pops up that you can be dead sure that no one else has.

Sterling Silver. Not silver foil, or plastic silver, chrome.. STERLING SILVER!

This little Pin, Enamel Brooch is such a thing. It’s cool, it’s old, it’s art, and if you get it, you may get a divorce. But you will have found her something she for sure didn’t find on Amazon.

The Amazon Pin. See, there is a difference . One is art, one is not even worth recycling.

So, just think. If you are the winner of this little ebay deal, for a brief couple days, your excitement of knowing her joy and thanks will be all worth the anxiety. WAKE UP! All she will be really thinking is. WTF? Another GD boat thing.  And now, your anxiety is back.. See it’s a roller coaster of emotion. But at least I got a story done today. But then again, there is tomorrow. AHHHHHHHHHH. I so need a boat ride.

    You know it’s “right” when the shipping expense is more than the cost of the pin itself…

    Sterling has marks telling of it’s silver content. This might have been made by the sterling trophy co. Pins aren’t usually made of precious metals because they are give aways. But you never know.

    5 days to go and at $23.50 now.

    It will be interesting to see what the last minute snipers do with this one.

    I use to spend hours looking at PT boat pins trying to decide why there’s such a descrepancy in price from $12-$175 for them on flea-bay. Never did buy one, same with the CC crest pins.
