Vintage Love: jumble sale jar

I love my latest vintage find, a jar from a jumble sale full of sewing bits and bobs.

All for the bargain price of 40p!

I find this type of find so intriguing. I know that someone has collected these pieces of haberdashery over many years, dipping in to the jar when they needed a particular button or buckle.

I had no idea what was inside, but I was pleasantly surprised to see such a lovely mixture of vintage sewing pieces.

All it needs now is a bit of a clean and I can start using them!

40p!!! Credit Crunchie bargain I say! I love the white pearly flower and the tortoise shell slip fastener. Very interesting find.

Love those buttons. I was given a collection not unlike that (no beautiful buckles/sliders though) with some green buttons almost exactly like those brown ones. Do you think they might be from the same era? 1950-70's

it certainly is a credit crunch bargain Quail!!

I think the buttons are probably 1960s to 1970s primrose corner, they look like early plastic, maybe even bakelite. Glad you like them!
