“Pin Makers” Episode of Frogtown USA tomorrow

Do you watch the Frogtown USA video podcast hosted by G. Dad and Brody? If not, tomorrow’s a great day to start! They’re doing a “Pin Makers” episode, and they’ll be joined live via video chat by none other than myself, along with a couple other pin makers I’m sure you’re familiar with. We’re going to talk about the pin-making process, how Covid-19 has impacted the pin market, and of course pin databases, among other things. If you’re into pins, it’s an episode you don’t want to miss.

Tune in at 10AM EDT, Saturday June 27, hope to see you there!

Additions at flockers.net

I’m very happy to announce that Will F. has joined the flockers.net team! He probably easily has the most comprehensive collection of Pigeons merch out there, so who better to help me keep up with it all? In a few short days, he’s added easily over 100 pins and is driving the addition of some new lists here! The Buttons section was just added and will be filled in soon, and we anticipate adding some more sections such as bracelets and slaps.

Big thanks to Will for the work he’s done so far, and I’m really looking forward to everything he’s going to bring to the team!
