About

Finding brooches and sharing the stories

My name is Babette and I am a passionate collector of brooches.
It started when I was little. I accompanied my mom when she was visiting flea markets. There I developed a strong crush for forgotten jewelery pieces like brooches. Slowly my brooch collection started to grow.

Right now I am sharing my brooches with you so you can wear fabulous accessories
as well.

Furthermore I love: vintage (kitchen) goodies, dresses, hot tea, cats, books, Christmas, parties and summer.

The Name: Broesj
I'm Dutch. In the Netherlands we call a brooche 'broche', which is pronounced 'brosj'. While I was fantasizing about starting my own little Etsy-shoppe I came up with the name 'broesj'. It has something from 'broche' in it and sounds a bit like 'babushka' (the mistaken name for the Russian dolls (they are called Matryoshka pop. A babushka is a headscarf).
