I realised that I had a teensy collection of Western Germany scarf clips by accident after spotting one in a vintage Christmas pop-up store late last year and bringing it home to the ones I had.

From the X'mas pop-up store. It belongs to my Mum now but I have a feeling I'll be borrowing it regularly!
This filigree beauty is actually a brooch I found at Portobello Road (ok, I cheated!) but it's also a German native
The first one in my collection which I found at a swap-meet.
The sweet lady gave it to me after I bought another from her
And this one is another Portobello Road find
I, actually, just picked up another scarf clip from an antique store today!
Do you collect brooches or scarf clips? I know of a few people who have amassed a decent collection of Mod enamel daisy brooches from the 60s and of a friend who collects insect ones. If you do, is there a theme to your collection?
