So my husband’s uncle gave me all these buttons that he found in his house. The house he grew up in and lived in with his mother and father. My husband’s grandparents. and all of their sister’s and brothers. The house was built at least three generation back. I can only image how long this button collecting has been going on.

I have begun sorting the buttons by color and now each color to those that have the same design. As I inspect them for carefully. I notice that some still have threads in them or even a piece of material where it was cut off the garment. Some are glass or plastic others I have no idea what they are made of. It is a learning experience for me.

This tin is after sorting

I have reached out to a person with a button club (who new there was such a thing) to see if any of them have any value. While I wait for a time that we can get together I have made up by own button card to sew the ones that go together on too.

These are some I found interesting

Either way value or just more craft button it has been fun just looking at all the neat designs. I now have a better appreciations for button. And can you believe it I will not be hunting for button during my travels.
