Some weeks ago a lady visited our shop. She told me she used to sell all kind of buttons and beads on a small market in Amsterdam. I was very interested in her collection and after that visit she came back to the shop to show me some buttons.
I bought a few and later she invited me at her house to see her whole collection of buttons. It was very nice to visit her at her home.

She had lots of buttons, but in the end I made only a small selection. Shown here are some of the buttons I choose. I like the fabrics and the bee. The last picture shows one glass button and one
from paper, never seen that before.


  1. Lovely story,the bee button is great.
    I'm jelous ; )

  2. mooi, ik hou ook zo van knopen
    mijn oma was naaister en verzamelde knopen in meerdere blikken dozen - daarin ook afgehaalde knopen van kleding die versleten was
    en ze gebruikte voor haar eigen kleding altijd knopen die met dezelfde stof van haar jurk waren overtrokken

  3. Buttons are so much fun, aren't they?

  4. wow, een knoop van papier, het lijkt meer een pastille, heel mooi!!

  5. I love buttons!! these are very lovely ones!
