Museum shops carry great brooches
- V&A shop carries a great selection of the most promising or established costume jewellery designers, plus some reproductions, like the one above. It always carries some great costume jewellery brooches, especially by Alexis Bittar, but also other designers.
- Metropolitan Museum of Art shop carries the most amazing selection of reproduction or art history inspired brooches I have ever seen. They have pieces inspired by Tiffany & Co., imperial Russia, Greek art, etc. I spend hours there whenever I visit New York, apart from visiting the collections, of course!
