What does a dealer collect?

People assume that dealers of vintage junk and antiques are hoarders. 

On the contrary.

I keep my home rather sparsely decorated. 

One of my few collections is contained in a display case.  This case, which my Dad made just because he was bored, houses my collection of vintage sewing notions, hankies, and diaper pins.

I lined the back with some silk toile from Japan.  The bag I am showing you is very old.  This darling handmade bag says "buttons" along the side.  Hand embroidery adorns it and I love the nose on this critter!  It's a sewing hook!  It has buttons it that someone collected. 

Each day I'll show you a little more of the collection in this case.
