As I sort I have a seam ripper nearby to remove threads and I pick out the trash, pins, broken buttons and sometimes non-button treasures. Sorting an authentic button tin can be dirty business, especially one with this may old shoe buttons! In fact, I don't think I have ever gotten a button box with so many shoe buttons and leather buttons. You just never know what you will find and it isn't done until you have picked up every.single.thing. and looked at both sides.
Do any of your collections involve rituals?
