The Pineapple Story

Pineapple Pins have been a symbol of hospitality since the days of the early American colonies.

The legend began with the sea captains of New England, who sailed to the Caribbean Islands and returned to the colonies with exotic fruits and spices.

When clipper ships returned to port, their families would spear a precious pineapple on their iron gatepost as a common symbol to welcome friends and neighbors into their homes.

The Starfish Pin Story

Once upon a time, there was a wise man who went to the ocean each day to do his writing.

He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work. One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a human figure moving like a dancer.

He smiled to himself at the thought of someone who would dance to the day, so he walked faster to catch up.
