Button collection at the thrift store!

These moments are rare for me, but yesterday when I was thrift shopping I noticed a carded button display in the glass cabinet at the thrift shop.  I really dislike having to ask them to open the cabinets as a rule, at thrift shops or anywhere else, but I was glad I did this time!
Can you see where this cardboard is creased in the middle?  That's where it was folded and put into a plastic bag.  What I saw in the cabinet was actually only half of the button display, which I didn't find out until I purchased it for $3.79.
What it lacks in beauty and presentation, I think, it makes up with charm!  I was initially attracted to it only for the shell buttons...
 but when I got home I noticed the enameled ones, which made me very happy...
as well as the additional quantity of pretty glass ones!  There are a lot of whistles (one holed buttons), too.
The one int he middle with the two diamond shapes is my favorite, and I noticed there is also a smaller version of the exact button, so I have a "mother/daughter" set which always makes me happy.
Mostly, I was just pleased to "rescue" this button collection; it's at least 50 years old, and it was put together by someone who obviously valued them!

What buttons have you found in the wild lately?
