Thrift Share

My thrift taste, often times, is objects that no one else actually cares for. Case in point this pin that I found in a non-profit thrift store. My friend thought it was awful, but I found it intriguing.


 I like the irregular shape of this pin, and the black background.

 Individual pieces of wood were placed on top of 
the pin to form the man and the evergreen tree.

Made in USSR is stamped on the back,
so we know it was made 1991 or before.



The pin will be placed on my winter coat lapel, I like it.

Looking forward to see what everyone else found this week.

  4. I think its lovely and it is so unusual.It's nice to have something different and unique, why do so many people want to have the same thing anyway?

  5. A very nice brooch, and something that has taken some time to make. I've been to a couple of flea markeds in the past and i will be showing my goodies.

    Thank you for stopping by, and enjoy sunday, we are snowed in here.
