Badges – What do you Collect?

Pin Badges

This is quite a simple post for me to write because I collect Pin Badges.

I have collected badges of all types since I was a kid, however, in my adult life, I have found I collect what are called in the UK pin badges or are sometimes referred to as lapel badges.

The badges I am talking about are the kind that have a pin that sticks directly out the back and has a metal clasp on the back.


My start on collecting this kind of badge, came around the time I went to Canada with my wife on holiday (it was before we were married and our first holiday together) I wanted something to remember things that we had done.

We were in a Hard Rock Cafe and I was looking at the badges and I thought cool I could get one of those and if we go to more Hard Rock Cafe’s I can get more. Well, a couple of hard rock cafe badges led to a stash of badges of all sorts from Scouting ones through Charity ones etc.


I am quite proud of the fact that I have every Red Nose Day pin badge, I am also quite proud of the Scouting ones I have collected by meeting people.

I hope that my collection will keep growing, although I may soon need a bigger box to store them in.

As always I would love to hear from you, please feel free to comment below on the post or share with others using the social media buttons.
