WWWhatsup Have A Nice Day Pins

While the pinstand's tendencies are mainly musical and iconic, sometimes we just make pins for the plain sake of pins. At Better Badges we used to refer to these as 'intrinsic'. One particularly successful line - the 'dodgy wind-up' series were designed by one 'dodgy des', whose hippy incense stand had been displaced from its spot in the Roundhouse by Better Badges in 76. He took the genre to new limits and eventually opened "the Badge Shop' in Covent Garden to sell them. Currently in the U.S. we mostly concede the ground to "Ephemera Inc' of SF who have a remarkable repertoire, but unfortunately no web presence.
