Where does one obtain shawl pins? Are they strictly a specialty item, available in either boutiques or jewelry stores, or can you find them in department stores? I'm thinking of the ones that are like what we used to call stick pins. I haven't seen those for sale anywhere since I was a girl. I've tried myself using a brooch, but the ones with a long enough pin are usually pretty heavy.

I'm in the beginning stages of planning for a wedding shawl for one of my virtual children, and would love to include a pretty shawl pin with it. I haven't seen any for sale, other than occasionally here at KP in the classifieds. If any of you who make these have any in stock, feel free to message me privately. I haven't seen the dress, and I only know the color, so I really am just window shopping at this point.

Any other tips or suggestions greatly appreciated.

I have seen some at thrift stores and I think Knit Picks sells them (but to me they are a little high in price)

Diy here. Something like a wooden curtain ring, and use a chop stick to pin through it. Add some beads or wrap in sparkly stuff to personalize it.

Nail polish works wonderfully as a paint on chopsticks

Check your LYS they should have some. Good luck!

Lots of nice shawl pins on Etsy, and not all expensive.

I bought some from Hobby Lobby, and ordered some from Walmart.com. Today I bought some at a craft fair in Fairhope, AL. I always look at craft fairs and am starting to see more. The girl from Fairhope has a website with her designs (www.claudiacarreon.com).
she is also on Facebook (claudiacarreondesigns)

A few years back I made some evening type sparkly shrugs for three family members using two threads held at the same
time silver/clear gold/clear & black/clear which cost a small fortune in yarn so did not want to spend a great deal on something to
join them at the front. While shopping at our Spotlight stores something caught my eye which I ended up buying which was
sparkly, or plain, as you wish, and turned out to be three Hair Clips on a card. They are the type you normally slide under a clump
of hair and then just click to hold them in place. They worked very well on the shrugs as I was only displaying how the front
could be joined and could be replaced by the owner's jewelry, if they so wished. They were not heavy at all. Just a suggestion.
Good luck!
Cheers

I just purchased a shawl pin from Herrschners. It is a large safety pin with a dragonfly on it and $4.99.
