Nice buttons! I'm a big collector also. I always ask at yard sales for old buttons. I have found huge tins of them. My maiden name was hungarian for "buttons" he he, guess I was destined to collect them.


Great buttons! How does a person determine whether buttons are bakelite vs plastic?


I love buttons too, especially bakelite, and I think you've nailed the reason - it's the patina. Rich and muted. Soothing somehow. You totally lucked out! I'm jealous.

*wondering where Allegan is and when I can get there*


wow, amazing button find. lucky you. i like that leafy button that is your favorite, too. sorry to say i have no suggestions on button resources, but look forward to seeing what you discover.


Wonderful buttons! The colors of bakelite are so warm. I only have a few as I collect mostly glass buttons but I do like to see them.


You should SEE the buttons we have at Village Wools. Amazing.


Oh my gosh, what a great find! They are beautiful.


Thou shalt not covet, thou shalt not covet, thou shalt not covet..... But I am!


those are lovely... seems as if vintage sample cards are always so much fun!


I acquired my first set of bakelite buttons from an ebay auction several months ago. I love the way the shine and the heft they seem to have. Looks like you got a fabulous set! Have fun.


wow, those are great! there's a shop near me that has a big tub of buttons, and you buy them for $1 a cup -- my daughter and i have a ball there. you probably already know this, but the latest craftypod podcast is all about buttons.
