Over the years I have managed to acquire quite a collection of extra buttons that often come with clothing purchases. I found that a 50+ year old pickle jar which has been in the family, was a perfect place to store these. Although I have never had to search for a replacement button, they're fun to display in the corner of the sewing room. And I have found that putting a bit of clear nail polish on the stitches in a button, helps prevent them from falling off.
