Weekly Wishlist | Shopping the pin trend

This Summer's enamel pin trend has inspired some incredible creations from independent makers, so we thought we'd make our second Weekly Wishlist pin-themed!

If you are looking for an enamel pin featuring a skull, a pineapple, or a piece of pizza then the high street is the place to go. However, if you are looking for something a bit more unique that will better display your personality, it’s definitely worth giving a few indie shops a browse. Whether it is a love of animals or stationery obsession, there is a pin out their to display everyone’s passion.

Here are 7 of our favourites…

Gemma Correll pug pin from Ohh Deer (£5.95)

The many collaborative ranges they have released together over the last few years have proven Ohh Deer, Gemma Correll and pugs to be a winning combination.

As the proud owner of one, I can confirm this pin is just as adorable in person!
