My interest in buttons started soon after I was married in my 20's. While raising a family, I devoted a lot of time to sewing clothing for us all, and while shopping at yard sales and auctions, I would always pick up button boxes when I could find them. Fast forward 40 years later, carpal tunnel has changed my life. I will never be able to use all the mountains of buttons I have amassed, so it is time to let go.
I started this shop as an avenue to share vintage sewing buttons with seamstresses and crafters while trying to lift the load from my children of trying to decide what to do with them. Nothing gives me more happiness than when one of my valued customers sends me a photo of a dress they are making or a vintage article of clothing and asks me to find buttons for it in my huge collection. As I sorted these buttons I began to wonder more about them....WHAT are they…
