Vintage Beauties

These beauties come from a factory that closed down. It beats me how a factory that produces such gorgeousness can go out of business.....













Gorgeous buttons from the 1940s and 50s...
































I bought 80 cards.....

So pretty! I find the odd button like this (sometimes chewed) when I buy up old button boxes, but the full, perfect cards are just wonderful! I have been enjoying the cards of rather duller buttons I've bought here in France, as even the boring buttons have beautiful French presentation cards.

OK, if there is such a thing as button overload, this might be it! Not the fact that there are so many. You can never have too many buttons, right? But so many at once? Oh my!
