Hi, I’m Melvin. I started this blog about 10 years ago because I kept coming up with projects that I wanted to keep information about online. At first I would start a new webpage with a new name, but that got old real fast because I kept getting new interests. That’s when I changed the name to 100melvins.com. So now I can publish or be interested in at least 100 different things. This site was never set up to make money. I just wanted a place to talk about my interest.  HOWEVER, I inherited a very large and very interesting collections of vintage lapel pins. Then I needed a place to show and share these pins. I think I have about 5000 pins, so it might take a while to get pictures of all of them. So have fun. I also will buy your big collection on lapel pins, so let me know if you have some to sell.
