My Nanna kept her buttons in this tin for as far back as I can remember.
When I was little and we would visit my Grandparents for Christmas, Nanna would pull this tin out for me to play with.
I've seen this same tin in a vintage and collectables store recently with an asking price of $25 and it was in terrible condition. I wonder what they would have priced my Nan's tin at?
Well, it doesn't matter what they would have asked for it, they aren't getting it. Nan's tin is staying on my sewing room shelf as a snapshot of one woman's button collection.
I guess that means I have another collection now.
Do you have a button collection? Did it start off as someone else's? What do you keep your buttons in?
I'd love to know!
