All or nothing at all...

Today was an antique bonanza. Flea market Sunday gone mega! A host of treasures dropped into my lap and I've been sorting, photographing and uploading all sorts of goodies to my little vintage shop, and I have only just begun! What I loved most were the buttons -- the likes of which I have never seen in all my years of haunting antique malls and shops.

Japanese porcelain buttons with shanks

Mother of pearl - look at those shapes!

Metal, some composition, buttons, circa 1900.
I'm in my element. Oh, joy!


  1. Oh Colette, these buttons are gorgeous... what a find!!!
    I have "button envy".

  2. those japanese buttons are amazing! great find !
