Announcement   Welcome to Yesterdays Buttons featuring handcrafted designs by Jan. Her Aunt Mildred had an interest in buttons from the early age of 9 years. When she grew up, she married Uncle Lester, and they set off on journeys all over the United States as traveling evangelists. As they visited different towns, she continued to collect buttons from friends they made along the way.

Here are her buttons made into bracelets, necklaces, and used in bookmarks and in handkerchief angels. The shop now has 4 sections:

1. Button bracelets made with beautiful antiques butons from Aunt Mildred's collection. Look closely and you will see that each bracelet has a theme button.

2. Bookmarks - each having an antique button selected to inspire your reading and your daydreaming when the reading gets slow (but really to help you save the place your were at when you dozed off).

3. Pendant Necklaces - These necklaces have pendants with very special buttons or with pictures of quilt patterns.

4. Handkerchief Angels - These are made using vintage handkerchiefs and quilts. Also included on some are vintage buttons.

I absolutely love this bracelet. First, it's a perfect fit. Flowers are my favorites and each button is a different one. Such an interesting mix of metals and some shades of color too. Great personal communication from seller, excellent price and fast shipping. Outstanding transaction and vendor. Thank you!

Absolutely stunning. I LOVE this bracelet. All of the buttons are in excellent condition and they work well in the order they were placed. I've had vintage button bracelets from street art fairs before, but this one is better. The seller was responsive, kind and prompt. Highly recommended.
