How To Display Vintage Sewing Buttons And Notions On A Peg Board

A Vintage Button Display Idea That is SEW Much Fun

Are you a sewing button collector and dealer ? Have you ever thought of packaging your collection of buttons in small plastic bags and hanging them up on a peg board? Look how tidy this booth looks at "Great Finds" in Sheffield, Massachusetts.

Hang Your Vintage Buttons And Notions On A Peg Board

Creating a peg board with buttons sorted by color and style may be a lot of work when you first start out, but after time, the system seems to be very convenient for both the seller and customer.
Notice the addition of a folded label attached with a few staples. This display idea is easy, practical and affordable.

Sorting Vintage Buttons Is A Stress Buster

I have been told by many button collectors that sitting on the floor or at the table sorting through mounds of buttons can actually be a stress buster. These are probably the same gals who find ironing and washing dishes enjoyable and very relaxing.

You can find small plastic bags (generally used for jewelry) on-line or from companies that service antique store products.

  1. I agree that sorting buttons is therapeutic! It gets your mind off everything as you get into "the zone" of sorting.
