Helpless Button Hoarder

My shop began as a place to sell buttons that did not make the cut into my own personal collection or artisan jewelry I created before being left with a disability which prevents me from making jewelry any longer. Since I am no longer creating jewelry with the specimens that do not become incorporated into my collection, they can be found here on Etsy, waiting to become part of yours!

To admit how long I have been collecting buttons would age me terribly, therefore, you can imagine how many buttons are contained in my studio! Believe it or not, but these little things add up and sure do take up space! My personal collection has been condensed to a sturdy, old chest containing all my favorite buttons! The remaining stock of buttons can be found either in my studio awaiting photography to be listed, packaged up or in vintage containers waiting to be sorted.

Welcome and thanks for coming to see my buttons! Antique and vintage buttons conditions will vary, please rely on good photo inspection in case I miss something in the description. Photos don't lie :)

I am no longer a business, I simply am here to sell the buttons I have that I don't want in my own collection so that I can buy ones that I do! Think of it as a "button trader". I will do my best to uphold the standards of a business, but just be aware that this is no longer my means of income.

Additional policies and FAQs
While I am a button collector, I do not attest to know EVERYTHING about antique and collectible buttons. In fact, there are not many people who do! At any rate, I try my best within my knowledge to describe the buttons for sale. I have been collecting seriously for over 10 years, so let that length of knowledge offer you peace of mind :)
