Buttoning

Did anyone attend the National Button Society Annual Show in Portland this month?  I didn't, but have seen some marvelous photos from it, and would love to hear more from anyone that was there!
I love to sort my button finds in these old, divided dishes.  Above, the contents of a $1 button jar that I bought at the Mile Hi Flea Market in Denver, yesterday.  Nothing rare or exciting, but it was worth $1 to me for the fun of sorting through it!
The silver toned button bracelet/cuff is a little treasure I found from a different vendor at the same flea market.  It's a crocheted band that's complete covered by buttons -- and I love it!  It set me back $2.50, and is sitting on a piece of quirky old fabric that I asked the guy to throw in!

How about you?  Show me your recent button finds!

Oh Laurie, that little bracelet is SWEET! I scored an unusual tin of buttons recently and just finished blogging about it. I hope you or some of the other readers can educate me on some I have never seen before.
Sadly, I did not get to the button convention. It was open to the public on Friday and Saturday. Friday afternoon we had a wedding to attend and I forgot all about it on Saturday. 8+(

Cute buttons in that divided glass dish, especially the red hexagonal one.

My grandmother had that very same divided dish in the aluminum holder. Ahhhh nostalgia! What a great place to store buttons!
