vintage finds: buckles and buttons
This little lot came from my favourite charity shop in Bath. I love it because one of the volunteers takes the time to sort through all the donated buckles and buttons and sews them onto recycled pieces of cardboard.
The pieces of cardboard are then placed in a huge tub for customers to delve into. It makes it much easier to shift through the buttons, often displayed in matching sets or colour coordinated groups.
I always enjoy visiting this shop and cannot leave without a haul of buckles and buttons!
