Featured Pin – Rum Bottle Pirates

We’re still celebrating the Sea of Thieves launch this week with a focus on pirate themed lapel pins! For todays feature, we found the perfect matchup of all the things we love. This one falls not only into the pirate pin category but also into one of our other favorites: “in a bottle enamel pins“.

Rum Bottle Pirates soft enamel pin is a silver plated pin from Magical Monograms. It’s also a bit taller at 1.5″ and comes with dual posts. It features some great lettering work with the pirate saying “Take what ye can, give nothing back“. This bottle pin has some simple coloring with a light and dark blue enamel and in an strange way, we think it all works together to create a unique pin. For us, it makes this one an easy decision at just $10.00.

Don’t forget to visit Magical Monograms Etsy shop for some other great pins! And, if you happened to miss our pirate pick from Monday, take a look at the Skull and Crossbones deal of the week.

Featured Pin – Goldfish Wizard

A wizard is never late, nor is he early, but he will always arrive wearing a large, pointy hat. Does anyone know why wizards wear hats anyway? All these wizard thoughts are swimming around because we found what we think might be the best wizard of them all; the Goldfish Wizard.

This adorable Goldfish Wizard enamel pin from seller John Moniker puts the “aww” in awesome. We love the overall design of this pin and the stars and moon in the hat add the perfect touch. The goldfish wizard pin is on the smaller size at .75″ wide and tall. It comes as a soft enamel with gold plating, three color fills and is single posted due to the small size. If you love fish, wizards, fantasy or just great mashups than this one is for you. This fishy wizard can be yours for just $8.50.

Be sure to stop by and visit John Moniker’s Etsy shop for several other great lapel pins.

Also, be sure to pay extra attention to the blog this week as we’ve got an extra post in the works with some exciting news!

Deal of the Week – Star Trek Insignia

Star Trek Insignia Enamel Pin Details
