Pantaloon Buttons


On a recent antiquing trip with my husband in Illinois we found this awesome antique shop called Winter Wheat Antiques. This place might have well been called a museum because they had some of the neatest papers, old ledgers, books and just really neat old stuff. The purpose for my antiquing weekend was really to accumulate some vintage crafting supplies to fill some stash swaps I am participating in for Silver Bella this coming November. The best part about this shop was that they were having a sale... and everything over $20 was fifty percent off....I can't resist a sale so I went hog wild. One of the most interesting things I discovered was this old box. Pantaloon Buttons. I just couldn't resist....it seemed so funny to me. The owner and I got such a chuckle. I hope this gives you a chuckle.
