Daryl stopped at an estate sale on the way home from work last night and brought me home a huge.... I mean huge.. bag of vintage buttons. These buttons are in pristine, brand new condition still on the original cards. What a find! I was thrilled.
And although I love buttons, there is just no way I can use all these buttons through out my life time, so I've decided to share these great finds with others. I took out the ones I wanted (you will see some of them on future scarfettes!) I am still sorting through and getting them organized, but I have started to list a few sets for sale on etsy.
Don't you just love these??
Be on the look out for more added daily!
Love vintage buttons especially when they are still on their original cards! The trouble and care people took with such a simple object that became less important when zippers and velcro were invented. The orange ones are glorious!
What incredible discipline you must have to not keep them all! I now have literally hundreds, but whenever I come across another stash, I have to buy them and add to my inventory. I have enough to make thousands of bracelets, or whatevers ... but, the more the merrier when it comes to buttons.
What a great find.
