All of these were sorted into similar colours in loads of little sandwich bags tied together with wool.
It is clear someone slightly unhinged like me collected these for years and treasured them. Most of them are full sets of 5 or 6 of the same type, many of them are so well made and it is clear that they are quite old. I kept finding bits of threads amongst them where someone had snipped them off old clothes and saw fit to keep them.

And now to the price … I paid £1.00 for all of these, I did feel a little guilty and added my change to the charity box to help ease my guilt!

Am I the only button freak out there?
