    Unfortunately (or fortunately?) for me, good books are harder to find in my area than good pearls.

    Caitlin, I like the box of buttons! Seems some of them are really old!

      Lovely! I'd flip the buttons on post 5, the d&g striped shirt. I love that streak of blue!

          Me, too! Love the buttons in your box and I love the books you come up with, too.

          No wonder this site flourishes, the threads spawn more delightful threads, even if technically it's hitch-hiking. No, I mean hijacking! hijacking the threads leads to wonderful stuff, like turning a corner on a path in a Surprise Garden!

          Oops, not that I think this thread is hijacked. Just musing.

            we're still on the subject in this thread!

            I do believe Jeremy first found the Billy Button brochure following up on a very early post. Test my memory. Find the thread.

            I love that Perlas put those pix up! I think eBay does a lively trade in MoP buttons. They are so classic and useful. I don't think wearing them a few more generations will hurt them at all. If anyone ever bothered to change buttons anymore.....

            well grandma Old will just totter away.......

              Hey cool! I just posted a thread last night asking if anyone on here collects mother of pearl items - I guess I got my answer!

              Is there a way to tell old mother of pearl buttons from new ones (other than wear of the holes of course?) I've seen some really elaborated carved ones that I thought were old but then saw some more for sale in the EXACT same pattern so they were obviously new (on Etsy).
