Our Story:

We at The Pin Sanctuary feel that if an idea is alive within our cultural jungle, even thriving, then its life is inevitably fleeting.

Soon, generations will emerge that are left unaware of its impact. Even an idea that adapts and evolves for generations will eventually be lost.

That is why our mission is to provide refuge for pop culture treasures on originally designed enamel pins.

The Pin Sanctuary was established by Derek Temple and Matt Bokan, two friends who’ve chosen to appropriate their time to the preservation, refuge, and exhibition of these wild treasures.
