pin button collection :3 i have been collecting pins
since 2020 but some of them i've had for much longer.

lets start with some buttons that i made! i got the button frames from michaels in the clearance section. i have 6 more blanks so hit me up if you need any.
★ WE'RE ALL DEVO is a refence to booji boy from devo. it is loosely based off legit devo merch.
★ The transgender symbol is so beautiful to me.
★ The TBH autism creature was the first pin i made with the button frames. i think its my favorite out of these.
★ MINIATURE is a cheap recreation of a button i found at the thrift store and loved so much i brought it with me everywhere. one day it fell off my bag and i was devastated.
★ This picture of Weird Al came from my mom's copy of Off the Deep End but the booklet got very water damaged and this was one of the only parts to survive.
★ the PEANUT / HE/HIM ones were made using safety pins my grandma gave me - they dont have a loop in the middle so there is no hassle to put beads on them
these buttons are ones i have purchased online for normal justifiable prices.
★ tax fraud i got from the depop of one of my favorite artists (vhsdreamland.) its so awesome i love jester furby
★i got the devo button from pukeandcryvintage on etsy. i didn't realize it was holographic until it arrived which made me love it 100x more :D
★ Also from etsy comes these 5 XTC buttons. they were from the shop blindedbuthemusic. the albums are drums and wires, black sea, english settlement, and skylarking. as well as the logo itself.
★ the last 2 come straight from the youtuber strange aeons, one of my aboslute favorites. i had to go for thursday boyporridge turns you gay naturally as well as MY HUSBAND JERIMIAH S MY ENTIRE LIFE

my issue with hot topic buttons can be summed up in 2 words: SIXTYTWO USD. i got into a really embarassing phase where i just bought pins from hot topic even if i thought they were ugly so anyway here they are. enjoy it .
finally, here are some buttons that don't quite fit anywhere else.
★TWINKLES i got from a chritmas party when i was very young. there were more but as far as i'm aware its the only survivor. it was my elf name.
★ i didnt know there were actual record stores in my area but turn out there is one and i love it very much. im a huge ZTThead which came in handy when picking out a button - behold, FRANKIE GOES TO HOLLYWOOD! my little sister bought it for me then as a little birthday gift. i wore it nearly everyday since then and lost it a few times and broke the sharp part on the back but its really an all time fave
★ FASHION IS FOR LOSERS. true . from an antique store but not an antique
★in july 2022 my whole family went to duluth minnesota and i got this button at the aquarium gift shop. its so cool! the boat moves!
