Treasures

It’s kind of gray and cold outside and still not feeling so great, so I thought it would be a fun time to go through a couple of tins that I had picked up at an estate sale. ¬†They are both filled with buttons along with a handful of other notions. It’s cool to see the difference in design and quality.

Some of these buttons actually feel like they were made from ivory.

Two buttons for a dime! And displayed on such a pretty card.

La Mode from Italy, a couple of garter belt clasps and B-G-E Originales buttons. They are so pretty. The back of the card wears the price tag from Boston Store.

8 cents each.
