A Good Day Junking
Wednesday? Really? Sometimes I don't know where the time goes. Well, most of the time.... Last Saturday turned out just the way I hoped. A lovely time going out to breakfast and then a trip to the VOA. Even though it was already after noon I found not one, not two, but THREE poke sacks of buttons. A good day junking!
There were plenty to add to my stash for Etsy plus MANY to add to my personal accumulation. Shoe buttons, carved MOP and those bone buttons that I have such an unnatural fascination with and another one of those walnut buttons.
Lots and lots of glass and chinas, more than I usually find in one button lot. Did you spot the extra special ones yet?
Some fun plastics. I always save those, even when they are contemporary. When there are sets of plastics I usually just keep one for myself and the rest go into the Esty basket. I haven't listed any in a while and need to get busy on that and share the button love!
I keep the cards that are "special" to my eyes. Those two buttons in between the Pacific buttons are vegetable ivory and have shading around the edges that is kind of different. As always, you can click the pictures bigger for a closer look.
If you didn't spot these yet, they were the score of the day. EIGHT china calico buttons. It is unusual to find just one in a poke sack and I was thrilled to find eight of them in three different patterns. Life is good!
