I bought vintage buttons off eBay - pounds of them to be exact! I'll have over 5 pounds when they arrive. Then I made the mistake of going to Sawyer Brooks. What lovely fabric they have! Wish I would have paid them a visit before I went shopping because even through the monitor, the quality of their fabrics is evident. Take a trip to their website and while you're there - read the "Finding Closures" blog.
And Buttons? I'm crazy for them. I recently read that closures can make or break a garment. I think it was in Nancy Nix Rice's newsletter that I read the suggestion of vintage buttons on eBay but my, oh my! Those Sawyer Brooks buttons are beautiful.
Strange that I can admire something so trivial, isn't it? Still, they are beautiful. And look at these shawl pins:
