Okay, I admit it, I am totally obsessed with pin badges, and I also love where I live, so when I found out that there was a Pin badge maker in Coventry, championing the city, you can imagine I was rather excited!
Every month, Etch & Pin release a new pin badge, based on something in Coventry. You can either subscribe to get them delivered every month, or get them individually from Etsy or one of the stockists in the city.
This month the subject is the iconic Elephant building which is part of their the Swimming Baths that are soon to be closed, and replaced by the water park currently being built over on the other side of the City. More on the history of the building, check out this article.
There are exciting plans for the building, as talked about in this article from the Cov TelegraphIf like me, you don’t want to pay postage for a local product, there are already three businesses stocking Etch&Pin. Milk, vintage clothing, The Ink Well, (Coventry Uni art shop) and Backhaus & Co in FarGo Village.
Previous badges have included “it’s a batch”, “I 💙 Cov” and “Sent to Cov”. What would you like to see next? Comment below on what you would like to see.
