This collection comprises 21 plastic dress buckles from the 50s and 60s. I collected the buckles from all over the shop [pardon the pun] will a view to making some use of them in my sewing. Alas I haven’t, and I shan’t. But I know people collect buckles and I know people who sew vintage who might like to make use of them.
The cross-stitched kookaburra is in the image as an organising piece. I originally bought this framed piece for a friend who collects all things kookaburra. That was when I discovered that A LOT of people collect all things kookaburra. My friend didn’t want the cross stitch and so I tucked it away in my ‘styling’ pieces for blog photos. Now I’m kinda fond of it.
