I should be practicing my dance but I thought it was just as important (if not more so) that I talk about buttons with you tonight.
Friday night I biked over to Michael’s and bought two bags of vintage buttons–yes, vintage–by Jesse James, along with some other things I needed. (I can’t find them on their website, but this is the company.) Then I promptly forgot about the buttons. This afternoon, as I was finishing up a project, I realized I needed a button. Then I suddenly remembered the two bags. It was like opening presents on Christmas morning, maybe better. I didn’t even bother taking the buttons out when I bought them. But when I did today, they were even more glorious than they looked through the plastic. So I just have to share them.
Vintage buttons from Michael’s? Yes, dead stock, in fact, taken from the basements of old sewing warehouses. They’re awesome.
