Badgers-shoemakers, postcard by V. Kotanov, 1976 (buy)
This little rainbow pin is the most popular pin in my shop. I never got as many requests for any other item as I have for this pin. Unfortunately, the thing about vintage things is that their number is finite.
I have two of these pins now, ready to ship. I also have a number of requests that is over two.
I’ve exhausted all my resources and I don’t know where to find any more of them. I will eventually (I hope!), but I don’t know when and where the chance strikes.
So because demand is greater than supply (and also because I’m broke after my European escapades) I decided to put them up on eBay for auction!
If you want to have this lovely original 1975 Soviet enamel pin with a space rainbow – bid here!!! 🙂 https://www.ebay.com/itm/253895780685
(The first pin is up for 7 days, when it ends I’ll put the second one up.)
