I’ve been on the look out for a suitable tin for my button stash. I inherited a great collection of buttons from my grandmother, the buttons survived but not her old tin. Since then they’ve been stored in various boxes and even an old sweetie jar. Along the way I’ve picked up some lovely tins:
But none have been large enough, until I found this old Cadbury’s Chocolate Biscuit tin in a charity shop.
I think it really complements my vintage button stash and looks great alongside all my vintage thread boxes, patterns and ric rac.
