About

My Mom, Pat Cooper, was an avid crocheter who loved to find unusual buttons for her beautiful creations.
She was a single Mom raising 6 kids on her own until she met my step dad in the late 1960's. After they married he wanted her to be a stay at home mom and wife. Needless to say, the adjustment from working 2-3 jobs to staying home was difficult so she taught herself to crochet to help fill the time.
She spent many hours perfecting her craft and became well known for her excellent workmanship and fair prices. Mom knew the importance of the little details and finishing touches and searched for just the right buttons to finish off her beautiful creations.
All of these buttons come from Mom's collection and when they are gone they are gone. While they are all new and unused some of the cards may have some wear on the edges or the buttons will come loose in a bag…

About

My Mom, Pat Cooper, was an avid crocheter who loved to find unusual buttons for her beautiful creations.

All of these buttons come from Mom's collection and when they are gone they are gone. While they are all new and unused some of the cards may have some wear on the edges or the buttons will come loose in a bag. Mom started collecting the buttons back in the 1970's and many are vintage from that era. Her peak button buying days were in the 1980's and my best guess is that is when most of the buttons were made and purchased. All are at least 10 years old.
She didn't get a chance to use her enormous stash before her eye sight and health failed so her buttons have been sitting unloved and unused for far too long.
She took great delight in their cuteness and would like that someone else is adding them to their "made with love" creations.
