When I was young I would often go to Antique Shows with my grandparents. I was quickly fascinated with antique buttons. They were small and inexpensive enough that I could even come home with a prized purchase or two.

Recently, while attending an estate sale, I found a large collection of antique buttons. The fascination was still there, full force. Each little piece of glass, plastic, jet, or bakelite had a story. As I started to picked up these little gems, I knew I was hooked all over again.

I am very pleased to announce that I will be introducing buttons to my store! Some will be new, some vintage, and some will be the fabulous little antique treasures. Keep watching!

New Items

I am so excited to be back in town and to finally be able to list a whole bunch of new items. There are some really nice color combos and a super cute black trim. These twill cotton ribbons with writing on them will be great for so many things!

I can't wait to hear from people about how these things are being used. Send pictures!!!

I am really excited to be doing something I really love. Thanks to Amanda for showing me Etsy and all it has to offer. Etsy has taken everything creative in my life to the next level!
