A whole BIG zip lock bag filled with buttons.
I washed them all, then put them out on two big
cookie sheets to dry.
They almost filled that 8" jar in the top picture.
That was what was left after I sorted out all
the "Mother of Pearl" buttons.
I said it like that cause I'm not sure
I know how to tell if they are or not.
I think most of these are.
Can you tell?
How can I tell for sure?

Barb, they sure look like MOPs to me!! YOU DID GREAT!!!! Wonderful find!! MOPs are usually not perfect and they actually do have the pearly look of the shells they're from. If you compare them side-by-side with plastic or bakelite ones, you'll see the difference right away. You have a good eye!
I just love rust.
These will be so fun to play with on my art.
That was just a smidgen of my fun finds last week.
Rest still waiting to be unloaded from car.
(had to do inventory before I could lug more treasures in.)
Hope you are all having a great first week of the New Year.
Oh, I forgot to tell you:
That whole big bag of buttons was only $2.00!!!!!!!
