Jar of Vintage Buttons | Quinn's Mercantile
My grandmother always saved her extra buttons in a baby food (or similar) jar to use when replacing one that went missing, and if she changed out the buttons on a dress, she added the old ones to the collection. Those old sewing notions were a far cry from the cheap, plastic buttons of today! We hope that this button jar, a vintage find rescued from an estate sale pile of "miscellaneous items" contains some real gems. If not, it's still a nice reminder of a generation that learned and practiced "waste not, want not"!
