Last Minute Shopping
My last minute shopping had nothing to do with Christmas. While everyone else was fighting the crowds at the mall, I was treating myself to some last minute junking. I scored another aluminum tray for my collection at the VOA and the rest is from Nina and Joe's Division Street Antiques.
A big pile of buttons and a sweet little tin sugar bowl. The button pile was the "real" kind so had all sorts of treasures, including a bullet, which I did NOT save. I will show more of the buttons in a separate post.
Creepy doll eyes. Don't judge.
This was a fun find. I live in Portland but this is the first time I have found a City of Portland Fire Department uniform button.
Uniform buttons are a whole button category to themselves. I don't know much about them but I always save them. I Googled these and discovered the POD stands for Post Office Department. Who knew!
