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.)
