Notions Department: Buttons


Those mindless clip art ladies sure love buttons!


This ad is so cute!


Here are some vintage buttons from my Notions collection:







This post is part of a long series I am doing that showcases ads and products from old pharmacies and 5 and Dime stores.  All of the ads are scans from the publication Chain Store Age September 1955.  The products photographed are from my personal collection.  I am running this series on auto-post so I can work on some projects around my real house.  I will return at the end of this series (April or May) back to "normal".

I adore buttons! I have quite a collection, though they are loose and not on cards. I actually use them too, but not often!

my house is cuter than yours said...

By all means, yes! I have used a few on very special projects.

Here is a couple of buttons I made into a bracelet:

and here is a bracelet that I bought that had several vintage buttons on it, for inspiration:
