I found two jars of these while I was in Connecticut. I made a quick stop to pick up some items for the bride and popped into an antique store for a minute and found these. The jar is vintage and there are hundreds of vintage, plastic buttons. I’ve got anywhere from 4 to 12 of any given one and they’re all fairly elaborate and in bright, pretty colors. I was giddy when I saw them perched on a shelf behind some records. Ryan had been driving the sleeping baby in circles while I stopped in, and I had to try very hard not to exuberate too loudly in the car. Once the baby woke up, I unwrapped the jars and showed them to him with a proud smile and he was like, “Oh, a jar of buttons.” I quickly tried to explain to him that it was not just a jar of buttons, but the best score ever. He didn’t really understand until I told him it was the like the time he found a first edition copy of Tin Tin, and he replied, “Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.”
I’m still not sure what I’m going to do with them. Anyone have any good ideas for buttons? Please share your links!
