First, let's start with the patterns. The majority of these are from the 1970s and almost all children's patterns. I know, I know, I don't have kids. However, my hoarding gene doesn't allow me to pass by 25 cent patterns that I may have a use for a decade from now.
I'd never seen this particular edition of the Good Housekeeping cookbook before. This one may end up in my Etsy shop since I will be on next seasons Hoarders show if I don't get rid of at least a little of what I bring in.
I also got a great vintage leather purse but it looked terrible in the photos.
Lastly, can we talk about buttons? Or more specifically, my ever expanding button collection.
Behold, the perfect Tupperware container for organization. I already had one of these and I finally located another at the Goodwill this weekend. Readers, if you ever come across these, snap them up. These containers are so perfect for buttons.
Just look at all those sections perfect for buttons!
So, readers how do you all sort your buttons? I love these containers, but they do have one downside. It can be hard to dig through them to find matching buttons. Well, I suppose two downsides. The lids do fit snugly, but as I learned the hard way not snugly enough to prevent a button explosion if you drop one on it's side. Those buttons above have been sorted twice. Ugh!
