vintage glass buttons

I collect lots of old/vintage things, including beautiful glass buttons.

They are like jewels and make a wonderful tinkling sound when they tumble out of the jar where they live. I'm thinking of making a necklace or bracelet with some of them. Ebay is a great source of vintage beads, as are op shops and antique/collectable stores.

What old things do you collect?

A beautiful collection indeed. I try not to collect, but it's really difficult. I collect mainly vintage fabric and notions from the oppy. Most of it never gets used - it just looks pretty in the stash.
