We're absolutely hooked on old button collections... sorting is soothing, and sharing is even better! All of our buttons are secondhand sourced, thoughtfully matched, beautifully aged. Photos are representative of the buttons you will receive.

Our goal is to move these beauties back up and out of the downward waste spiral and back into beloved rotation. When you make this purchase, you tell the market that you value the care and creativity involved in carefully sourcing, matching, and offering the handiwork of our forebears: finished products are embodied energy, after all.

Managing custom requirements for tiny, low-cost items is prohibitive - but we're glad to review order notes and pick your order accordingly based on available inventory at the time of your order.

  • Shipping

    • 100% secondhand packaging

    • intentionally slow in-house service levels

    • ground shipping only

    This is climate-competent commerce, and we talk a bit more about each of these strategies on our 'official' shipping policy page:

    The Fine Print 
  • Proactive Satisfaction + Refunds

    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.
