I have a massive stash of buttons, just ordinary ones but lots of them. I think it is because my Nan used to have a big biscuit tin full of them and as a kid it was a real treat to be allowed to rummage in there. Ruby and I occaisionally get them out and sort the colours, count the holes or string a button bracelet together for her to wear, great fun ;D

my grandad was a bespoke tailor (our family claim to fame is that he frequently measured princess margaret for her 'costumes' as ladies' suits used to be called).  Anyway, I digress...

He had the most enormous button box and it was my bestest day when I was allowed to play with them.

Bringing it right up to date, I have plans in mind for making silver buttons  :-X

sadly not Nicola - although I do have a fair few century old cotton reels (complete with thread).  The button box disappeared with the Singer treadle sewing machine :-(
