Buttons Buttons Buttons! *GiveAway*

I would like you to meet Elvira. She is one of our fabulous merchants here at the Vintage Corner. She has a space that has so many buttons all packed up and ready for whatever your button desires are, crafting, collecting, re-purposing or simply just because.

Elvira started collecting buttons in the late 1980's for button bracelet gifts. She started to look more closly at the older ones and saw the "art ' that was put into them.

Her sister found a 'button club' and she joined a local, state and the National Button Society. Lots of information and learning different types and how they were made. History is a great learning tool for those with aging minds! There are also many button learning books available. The best is to try to go to a show where you see spectacular buttons on competition trays and lots for sale. You can learn more at and locate local groups.

Elvira has thousands of buttons from 1800's to present day ones.She has many favorites, shell, cut steels, lacy glass types and just what tugs at her soul. So many in fact, that she also sells on under abandc.

Elvira says "I love the 'Vintage Corner'. It has old, newer and re-purposed items. Home decor, art jewelry, furniture....a great mixture to catch the eye. Things are always changing and there are new and different things all the time. So many talented sellers! It is a great gift shop for unusual and fun items. Hope you stop by soon."

Elvira is so generous, she is having a GIVEAWAY. Leave a comment below and you will be entered to WIN this treasure. Just look at the grouping she has put together! Thanks Elvira!
