Another button fix for vintage button lovers everywhere! The featured buttons below and many others are available at Love Buttons on Folksy and can be sent worldwide.
First up is a set of three vintage Czechoslovakian glass buttons made from transparent glass with a coloured design at the base, and gold parti-lacquer on the moulded surface. They would make a nice addition to a glass button collection! They cost £3.25 for a set of three buttons.
The next lot are a set of mixed buttons in shades of brown and green. They are a mix of vintage and newer buttons, plastic and metal. They make a simple and attractive closure for a handmade bag or purse. This collection costs £3.50 for sixteen buttons.
This adorable set of vintage wooden buttons have a sort of 'toadstool' shape when seen in profile. The fronts show a pointed dome shape with six carved notches looking like petals. They cost £3.75 for a set of seven buttons.
Enjoy the rest of the bank holiday weekend ... and please drop by Love Buttons HQ if you have a spare minute or two ;oD
The first is a set of thirteen diminutive Mother-of-Pearl shell buttons. These tiny, triangular buttons have two sew through holes and have been dyed green. They cost $4.20 for the set.
This pair of pierced and painted metal embellishments were found in a sewing box, but I'm not entirely sure what they were originally used for! They can be sewn to a garment or other project using the central hole and surrounding pierced areas in a sort of 'star burst' effect. They are made from white metal with colourful painted decoration. They cost $7.00 for the pair.
Finally, six vintage ball-shaped rose beads in a coppery coloured metal, with two threading holes. The rose motif appears on both the back and front of the bead. Very nice focal point beads for a necklace, bracelet or earrings. They cost $4.95 for six.
Don't forget to drop by and say 'Hello' on my Love Buttons HQ website, where there are hundreds of other buttons waiting to be discovered :D Happy crafting, folks!
