Does anyone still keep buttons from discarded garments?
I must admit I don’t usually but I really should, if only to add to my collection.
I keep mine in a lidded storage box now having dropped the tin on a couple of occasions, although strangely enough I still refer to it as the ‘button tin’.
There are buttons in here that belonged to both my grandmother and my mother.
I remember playing with the button tin when I was a child, marking out fields and fences to put my brothers farm animals in – while he was at school of course, he would never have let me touch them had he known!
Hours of fun.
