Button, Button. Who’s got the button?

This past Tuesday, the volunteer session at the Costume Museum of Canada was prep work for the Trunk and Button sale that will be taking place early next month.

Some people were working selecting buttons for the scoop bins.  (Pay the price and scoop out a bunch of buttons.)  Others were sorting buttons that matched for sale as sets.  I was working assembling random pretty buttons on cards for collectors.

This is one of mine. The card is a photo of hat pins in the museum’s collection. I sewed some pretty buttons over top of a few for a “3D” look.

One of the perks of volunteering is some pre shopping I can do.  My selection has been set aside for me to be priced and then paid for on sale day.

My little potential hoard.  I may have to “throw some back” if the price ends up being higher than I thought.  I hope not….

If the little darlings become mine, I will share photos of my loot!
