YALC gave me Pin Badge Envy…

Pin badges? I have previous. During the 2012 Olympics, I worked in the shopping centre next to the stadium. This put me in prime position to accost athletes and sponsors for pin badges. I have about 50 – national badges, sponsor badges and a lovely gold aeroplane from an R.A.F. pilot. One day I’ll take a picture – currently they are lost in one of those boxes which the loft and garage make so ignorable. (Anyone have cars in their garage? Throughout my extended family, garages seem to be accepted as storage space.) 

Currently, I collect RSPB pins. Every time I walk at my local bird sanctuary I buy I couple. I would like to say I recognise the birds. I’m afraid, like most people, I can recognise a robin, a pigeon and a Canada goose. Regardless, the pins are lovely and it is a great way to support a charity. 

All the Tweets about Y.A.L.C. gave me pin fever. Where else could I get bookish pins? Turns out the answer is everywhere! I had already found the Mockingbird pin when I wrote my post about bookish gifts. My pin wishlist has grown.  Y.A.L.C.ers? You’ve got me on to something. If anyone has that STAGS school badge, I’ll swap you for….I dunno….but I’ll swap you.

Do you collect pin badges? Have you got any bookish pins? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. I was on secondment working on the 2012 Olympics for 3 years, so I have quite a few of those pin badges too! Think they’re in the attic now – must dig them out and look them over 😊
