The Find of a Lifetime
This shop began as "JellyJarJewels", my way of saying, "Goodbye" to the hand crafted jewelry business that I started in the 1990's. You can still find some of my finished jewelry, as well "JellyJars" of beads here in my newly designed and renamed "JellyJarButtons" shop.
I am also the owner of the "VintageJoysAndJewels" shop here on Etsy, where I sell wonderful vintage items, including buttons. I have a passion for just about anything old, so I scour estate sales and thrift stores in search of inspiring things...
...Which led me to "The Find of a Lifetime". Just recently, in 2018, I came across the motherlode of vintage buttons at an estate sale. It must surely be the inventory from some delightful sewing or button shop. It consists of literally thousands and thousands of the most wonderful vintage buttons you could ever imagine. It took my breath away! With my husband's encouragement, all of those beautiful buttons came home with me that day.
Every time I begin to sift through the buttons, I nearly hyperventilate! I keep making the most amazing discoveries! I still have not made it to the bottom of the bin...
I decided to continue on with my "JellyJars" brand, and redesign this shop to focus on the beautiful buttons.
So, welcome to "JellyJarButtons"! If you are a button lover and collector, you might want to have a paper bag handy, as the amazing buttons you find here may leave you "hyperventilating" as well!
I am a nurse by profession, and a vintage treasure hunter, collector, knitter and crafter in every minute of my spare time. I am also a wife and mom to 3 wonderful kids, and the lucky grandma of 2 sweet baby boys!
