I recently started a new Carnival collection this year. I have always admired the Mardi Gras Carnival krewe pins given as favors by many of the old krewes. Many of the pins are coveted by krewe members. I have always wanted to own a few of my own, but I do not ever think I’ll be a member of Rex, one of the most prestigious organizations.
I hit the jackpot at a local Antique store when several pins were on sale for $15.00 each. I grabbed four from differing years. Many are offered on ebay and other bidding sites for upwards of $100.00. I certainly scored a deal. I’d love to add to this collection in coming years.
I displayed the pins on my Mardi Gras toile pillow. I adore the spirited look of the pillow.
