Holy Buttons Batman

I stopped at a yard sale a few weeks ago and happened upon quite a collection of buttons.  I couldn't resist and bought the whole loot for a whopping $10.  No only will I use them for my own crafting...but they will make a nice steady stream of new listings for my Etsy Shop NowSoLA!
The Loot
Yesterday, I finally had the time to sit down and start taking inventory of the collection.  I only touched the tip of the iceberg! Thankfully the woman who collected these buttons had them somewhat organized already...Fancy Matched, Big Matched, Fancy Singles, etc...

Not only were there buttons, but lots of neat belt buckles too...

 By far my favorite find so far are these random doll parts...very interesting!

I can't wait to start really digging in and see what other treasures I uncover!

  4. I love the doll parts and the creepyness of them too! I always see vintage buttons but never grab them. Looks like I need to do some button research!

  5. Amazing assortment of buttons. I love creepy doll bits too, but I never bring them home. I already have enough odd collections :) (dinosaur and robot toys, 90s VHS tapes...)
