I've been collecting buttons for many years. Some are glass, bone, bakelite; many with beautiful designs and jewels embedded. Some are huge and some are tiny baby clothes buttons. Usually they come in glass jars with pieces of costume jewelry, hair combs, thimbles and buckles included. So what does one do with gallons of buttons? I don't know.
Here are some of my favorites. The clear bunch of cherries, an art deco era piano keys button and my fav, this large 60's button with little velvet flowers encased.
