Hat Pin

Not a deal request as such, but somewhere to buy a ladies Hat Pin.

For some uncertain reason, my wife has mentioned that she'd quite like a nice hat pin - maybe because her hat blew off in the wind or something. Anyway, it's her birthday soon, so I've been looking about, but can't seem to see anywhere either online or on the high street that sells them.
I can see a few on ebay, but nothing particularly nice.
Other than trawling antique shops, does anyone know either a website or retail store where I can get one?
Thank you.

Do you mean like a pin with a fancy end on made of glass or metal decorated with diamonte stones or something?

pennypins.co.uk/

is that the sort of thing in that pic ( they wholesale ) but just to get an idea.

Yes, not sure if they have a proper name, or are just called hat pins.

If they have a proper name, it could be why I'm not finding much when I search,

Yes! That's exactly the type of thing.

Ok well I've not really seen any in the costume jewellery section in clothes shops,don't recall seeing any in Claires ( thats a shop that sells jewellery and all sorts of other bits for girls and laidies mainly ) so my next thought would be a main dept store like John Lewis,Fenwick. I think it would be easier to get 1 off eBay cos to be fair I not really seen any in shops but maybe I don't go in the shops that sell them too! Can't go in everywhere,never get back in house.

Also give the charity shops a try. They usually have a small jewellery section at the till. Will be cheaper and you will be helping a good cause. You may pick up a treasure.

I've looked online at Past Times and Accessorize/Monsoon and they don't have any. You need to go to gift shops that sell various trinkets and jewellery that sort of thing,and there is some on eBay too.
