Vintage Collectables: Buddies Brooches

Need a cute buddy? Then you might consider a 1940s Buddies Brooch.  These adorable pins were popular during World War II.  Girls would wear a soldier or sailor pin depending on what division of the military their sweet heart served in.  

The most common brooches are soldier 

And sailor 

and they are pretty easy to find on etsy or eBay.  

Buddy brooches don't stop there I've seen Cowboys, sombrero wearing figures

And cranberry manor on etsy has a darling bell hop boy. 

I got my first buddy brooch from eBay, a sailor. His leg has a repaired crack so I was able to bargain and get a good deal. 

I hope to find him some friends in the future

    1. Oh and the hat is so lovely! Sailor buddy looks great with what you're sporting!

  4. They're so cute. Never saw those before!

  5. They are very cute... We have never seen them either!

  6. Awesome find! I've been hunting for one or more of these charming novelty brooches for at least 15 years now. No in person luck, so I may have to splurge one day and purchase one online. Yours is terrific and made me smile ear-to-ear just seeing it.

    Big hugs,

  7. I never heard of them - so cute! That last photo of you wearing your sailor brooch is lovely.
