I have a deep and dear appreciation for brooches, especially the type of brooches that have their own sense of uniqueness and character. My antique brooches are my most coveted ones because behind them, there’s history, a fascinating story even.

I typically buy my brooches at antique stores or my secret thrift store locations (I’m kidding, I share) and usually spend no more than $5 per brooch.
