I was fortunate enough this week to happen upon a button vendor who was selling a couple of "matching" sets of antique buttons. I bought several and when they arrived went to work right away making several pairs of earrings. To my disappointment some of the paint on a few buttons had worn off to the point of not matching the other button very well. Thankfully my years of mixing paint and dying shoes paid off. I touched up a few of these blah buttons so that they match their mate. I just listed this pair in my shop tonight and hopefully will have about 3 more pairs to list.
