This week, I have a jar of vintage buttons. I purchased this jar of vintage buttons about 20 years ago at a small local antique store located close to my home. I love old buttons, and have several different collections of buttons. This one is most likely the first little jar of vintage buttons I purchased back so many years ago.
I loved the old refrigerator jar that the buttons were sold in. It was worth the asking price alone.
Here are some of the many varieties of buttons in this collection. Some are gold, some white, some brown and some a variety of other colors.
These are some of the larger black buttons. They look like they were well worn. I am thinking by the size alone, that maybe these came off a coat. They are really nice quality buttons. I really like these.
These buttons are so pretty. This is a mixture of white or off-white buttons found in this jar. Some are rather large, but some are very tiny. Many of these buttons have a Opel look to them.
I hope you enjoyed a peek into one of my vintage button jars. Can you imagine the stories these buttons could tell of days gone by? I love old buttons in old jars.
