What's the latest trend?

Well I know I reported on it before but my won shop has been selling Brooches like CRAZY!! Ladies are wearing them on their lapels again, adding them in clusters of 3, 4 and 5!!  Decorating their purses and more!

What are some ways you can use a brooch??

Well while searching through the world of Pinterest I found a board designed to answer this question!
