Buttons galore!

I've been having a sort through my button collection... I have some lovely vintage glass buttons - I spotted some just like these in the latest issue of Homes and Antiques magazine...
They are art deco Scottie dog buttons - I have two brown ones and never realised that they came in other colours until I saw red, green and blue ones in the magazine.  I like these ones too much to part with though - sorry they won't be appearing in the shop!
I do have lots of buttons which I will be selling though - like these metal picture buttons which I think are of the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti...
These yellow and orange ones are in the shop now too.  The little orange ones are so thin and light weight, I think they are made of metal wrapped with plastic.
I'm determined to get through my button stash so that I can have more room for my favourite ones - hopefully there will be a lot more in the shop over the next few  days.  One day I might even get around to displaying the special ones properly - it seems a shame to just keep them hidden in a box all the time.


  1. Hi,
    I have around 30 of the Art Deco Scottie Dog buttons. It was my collection featured some time ago in H and A magazine. I have 3 sizes in red, blue, green, beige, brown and navy. Jox

    1. I have just found 4 blue ones. Are they worth anything?
