Customization is everything in 2016. None of us can afford nail polish anymore, so the next best way to show off is to grab an old jean jacket and pin, pin, pin. Repeat ten times. Now you’ve got thirty pins! Historically, enamel pin collectors have bought, hawked, and traded their wares on sites like Etsy, eBay, or Cargo Collective. But now, pintrill.com, the Brooklyn-based site that dropped the Kanye Pack of pins that lit the internet on fire, has opened its first brick-and-mortar store, in South Williamsburg. Pintrill is arguably the Costco of pin collectors on the merit of its overwhelming selection, and it cranks the topical ones out fast. Grab a Damn Daniel enamel pin, for example, because you know that’s going to age well.
