Photos of buttons and button art for collectors and others who love them. If you have fond memories of poking through your mother’s button tin, you have come to the right place!
After many months of searching at thrift stores for buttons and coming up relatively empty, I had a restorative experience yesterday! As in, it restored my faith that it was possible to find beautiful buttons in thrift stores.
I found these at the bottom of a bin at our Goodwill Outlet. The sparkly ones were mixed in with some Christmas ornaments -- not even vintage ornaments.
The larger stones on the outside are aurora borealis stones; the smaller ones have a pale green tinge.
Here's what the back looks like. I think they are just beautiful!
I believe these grape cluster buttons are made from Lucite or a similar plastic with sparkles in the mix. They definitely need to be cleaned but I have to research the best way before I attempt it.
