Search: Red

When you enter “red” into the search, this is only a few delights that you will find. Red is a stand alone color, but it works with so many others. It’s power, love & fun all wrapped up into one fabulous color.

Pin & Tack Hearts Animal Place

Pin & Tack loves Animal Place and let me count the ways . . .

1. Animal Place provides a permanent home to animals from farms (big & small), slaughterhouses, and research facilities.


2. Animal Place “strives to create meaningful change for farmed animals through advocacy and education.”

3. Animal Place promotes veganism through publications and cooking classes.


For February, Pin & Tack will be supporting Animal Place with $1 from every item sold at the shops.  However, I always encourage you to donate directly.

Your support will help this organization continue to provide the animals everything they need to have a healthy, happy life. And every animal deserves that!

Blessings & joy, yours truly . . . Corrinne Quinn

Charity Starts Here . . . Ways To Support Dogs For The Deaf

Did you know? Dogs For The Deaf was founded in 1977. Ever since, they have been dedicated to each dog and person for life, offering guidance and support to make sure they remain a successful team!

And there are only a few more days to shop at Pin & Tack to benefit Dogs For The Deaf! $1 from every listing sold at the shop will support this important charity.

Not in the market for boutique pins, tacks & other delights? Well, that is never a problem. I encourage you to donate directly and Dogs For The Deaf offers a variety of ways to do so.

Field Of Memories: With a donation of $150 or more, you can honor a loved one with a memorial stone and daffodil.

Recurring Donation: Set aside funds each month to be automatically given to Dogs For The Deaf. Any amount is appreciated!

Special Occasion Donation: Send the gift of charity to someone special with a greeting card and monetary donation in their name.

Shop: Spread the word through gifts with DFD logo, such as cards, clothing, mugs, totes & more at their online ship.

It can cost up to $25,000 to rescue, professionally train, and place a DFD dog. They charge only $50 for the application process. To make sure you are serious and can afford keeping the dog, $500 is required to actually receive the dog, but it is fully refunded after 1 year of living with the dog. How incredible is that?

It’s A Blooming New Day!

Something oh, so lovely has sprouted from my boutique thumb tacks. It used to just be glitter and rhinestones. With these new creations, I do not have to hammer rock or grind it into flecks. Ha ha. Okay, I never really had to do that.

And if you didn’t already know – I mean, I hope I’ve said it enough – $1 will go to Dogs For The Deaf. Let’s support people and dogs, providing them both with enhanced, happy lives.

It’s Time To Party With The Dogs

Let’s celebrate the dogs! All month long, Pin & Tack is by giving $1 from every item sold at the shop to Dogs For The Deaf. They rescue dogs, providing them with training to give independence to people. It’s why dog is man’s best friend – woman’s, too!

These fun finds would make any party DOGtastic! From party favors to sugary cupcake toppers, you will enjoy sharing your love of dogs with others. IDEA: Host a charity event for your local rescue group or shelter using these goodies. Instead of party favors, you can have silent auctions!
