My bug collection of tin litho dime-store pins....circa 1960's-70's? I don't remember seeing them as a kid but later loved the vivid color and detail in these and snappers, toys, games.... so I bought what I could here and there - plus they were cheap. Wouldn't they look great on a black beret? - a homage to cigar bands boys collected in the 30's.
My favorite is the brown moth - good to have 3. I admired the yellow butterfly a customer at Macy's wore and she gave it to me right then.
I also have a blue parakeet but couldn't locate it in the hoarder jewelry area of my house. It really BUGS me when I can't find stuff...
