New Finds

I’m not a fan of the method of attaching button and buckles to store cards by stapling instead of sewing. Whilst probably more efficient (less manual handling), it didn’t always produce a neat finish, as the cards below show. On some older examples, rusting of the staples can ruin an otherwise nice vintage item.

These are from the late 1960-early 1970s. I have had to replace some of the staples with cotton.

Below is a nice little collection of variations of a 1950s Beauclaire button style.

From Carol

Originally a 1950s Beauclaire (Tiny Tots) design, it has been reused many times over the following decades.
