When former President George H.W, Bush blundered into Broccoligate by admitting that he didn't care for the green, Founder James Breakell responded by sending Barbara Bush a brooch fashioned in what has been one of our best selling pins ..... a broccoli sprig. The gesture prompted a personal note from Mrs. Bush which hung on the wall of the Breakell Retail Store. located in the historic downtown Newport, for many years. Our Broccoli Pin is 1 1/2" in length and 1 3/8" at its' widest point. The original pin now resides in the National Archives under Presidential Gifts.
