Pinback - Funky Design Bullshit

Wacko Funked Out Cheezoid Brands tried to work Pinbacks into the sell-factor on JEANS
in the late Eighties/Early Nineties.  But kids would just flow through Macy's and Bloomingdale's
and steal the pins.  Same thing happened with hang-tags that were stickers.  Kids would just yank
'em off.  I don't know if this Pinback is really one of those funky pins that came on a baggy
Girbaud-rip-off -- but I like to think it is.  Either that or a funky "brooch" for one of those
weirdo Aunt types from the period that encouraged your drawings, polaroids, and thoughts on
what was cool on the radio.
