If you've been to Peach Parlor lately, you may have noticed that it's been taken over by endless listings of vintage buttons. It all started while antique shopping with my mother-in-law. I squealed over a jar of all white buttons, and had to buy them, which gave her an idea to sell jars of buttons in her new antique mall booth. She scored the motherload, buying 33 pounds of antique buttons for a great price. I wish I had them all in one pile so I could show you what 33 pounds of buttons actually looks like! When she called me over to check them out, I was in shock and immediately fell in love with each and every button. I dug through the piles with my mouth on the floor, admiring each and every one like a tiny piece of artwork. Someone spent their whole life collecting these, and so many of them seemed so old and unique and I knew these couldn't be antique mall filler, stuck in jars for decor. I told her If she took them to the mall, I was going to go buy them all anyway, so she might as well save the time and sell them all to me now! You know how this story ends by now.. with me diving into a pool of buttons Scrooge McDuck style.
