Vintage Button Gift

A friend of my Mother's from High School, recently gave her a bag of buttons to give me. Aren't these great!? I can't wait to start adding them to some of my projects : )

Buttons on display

Don't you love finding buttons tucked away in antique markets? Look how someone mounted colored buttons on Bingo cards -- just simple plastic buttons, but it makes a special display. I really love this general-store type drawer unit (front, above) And here's the back. Lots of goodies tucked inside... and on top!  I adore the look of clear glass jars full of white buttons!

Beautiful Buttons!

Last weekend I met an elderly gentleman at the flea market who has been collecting buttons for many years.  I feel in love with a tray of rhinestone buttons and was able  to negotiate a price that I felt was reasonable for both of us.  He thought that most of the ones I purchased were from the 40's. If any one has suggestions for a good resource to learn more about my new collection or a way to display them, please comment.
