Just in time for Valentine’s day, we have some extra special custom enamel pin sets. We’ve been wanting to make these for a long time! Designed by Sawtooth Print Shop and including a handmade letterpressed card, each set contains a pair of distinct objects often seen near or on our favorite folk heroes, Gillian Welch & David Rawlings. Naturally we have their trusty guitars (Gill’s Gibson J50 and Dave’s Epiphone Olympic), but we also have a set with Dave’s signature cowboy hat and Gill’s custom-made boots.
For a limited time, we’re also offering free gift wrap on these pins! Just check the box on checkout and we’ll wrap these up so you can give them to your favorite Gill & Dave fan.
