Katie Hof of Faux Fox Studio is also a collector drawn to ‘every pin in existence’

“It’s really easy to buy from a lot of sources and not realize how much you spend on pins. You’ll buy five pins and you’ll realize, well I spent $50—that’s fine, I’m supporting an artist. It’s really easy to just spend all of your money on pins. It’s not difficult when they’re so tiny and you can put so many in a small space. That’s part of it—that’s a small part of it. Part of it would be, like I said, that they’re little pieces of artwork. By buying it, you’re supporting an artist that you like. And that concept, the whole community, really, is what makes it desirable to buy pins. I’ve met so many people from the community and have bought pins just to support artists personally—their dreams, their ambitions, their small businesses.”
