mixed vintage buttons
We love the detail given to button shapes and designs in decades past (and we’re a bit snobby about the cheap ubiquity if newer versions), so when we had a chance to bring in a quality mix of old buttons recently, we jumped at it!
When you purchase this listing, you’ll receive a 1/8 pound scoop of vintage buttons from our hand-curated selection. Most buttons in this batch are 1940s-1980s era plastics, with other materials making occasional showings. Button sizes, colors, & count will vary from order to order- a typical order will have 60-70 buttons...larger buttons = fewer buttons in these weight-based orders...
These photos are taken from our current 10-or-so pound assortment and are representative of the types of buttons you might receive. Photos 3-5 with the dark blue background are each examples of a typical two ounce assortment.
Pre-loved needles & thread? We’ve got those, too.

This is climate-competent commerce, and we talk a bit more about each of these strategies on our 'official' shipping policy page:
Proactive Satisfaction + RefundsRefund policy
We have adopted a 'generally generous' approach to fulfilling many of our product listings, as sending a wee bit extra can avoid costly errors & 'fix it' shipments (besides, we find most folks appreciate the occasional freebie).
That said, if you would prefer to avoid the extras, we will gladly rightsize or downsize your order on request (product price would remain the same because more labor + less product = wash). If you prefer this option, please include a detailed order note to specify the quantity you wish to recieve (i.e. 'please send precise count of 7 for XYZ product').
As a rule, we discourage returns - but we also don't abide crappy customer experiences. To initiate issue resolution in the event that we miss the boat with your order (gaps happen!), head to our refund policy page (linked here - and at the bottom of any page) to get started.
