Anyone know of an etsy shop or online store that sells nice, funky brooches, pins, sweater guards? I like the idea of wearing a brooch, but I want something a little more unique than a fabric flower (I like those, but I have a lot of them). Any ideas?

I just got a sweater guard off of Etsy, but I think it's the only one the seller had, so I can't make any kind of recommendation. I did a search for vintage sweater guard and came up with about 200 results, so I just picked the one that struck my fancy the most.

As for brooches, my favorites are from TillyBloom on Etsy. Everything is based on Victorian illustrations, which I think are great, but I think it's probably a love it or hate it thing.

I have this one, called the Automated Daydreamer.

My friend makes felt brooches. I think they're pretty cute. I have a camera one all handmade/stitched. LOVE IT.
