Olympic Sewing

 Hooray, the Olympics are finally here!


In honor of that, I thought I'd share the vintage sports (sewing) buttons
I found while searching the Internet.
(You know how I have to tie everything to vintage 'round here, right?)

Downhill Skiing

Tennis
Stonehill Collectibles

Equestrian
Horsetrader21

It is a lot easier to find the pin-back or badge type of sports button
than it is to find these vintage sewing buttons.


Discus Throwing

Archery
SunnyButtons

Fishing (what an oldie this is!)

 
Colchester Treasure Hunting and Metal Detecting
 
Golf

 Now, fishing and golf are not Olympic sports,
but there are probably many folks who wish they were!

Hi Autena,
What an awesome collection of vintage sports related buttons, they're awesome. Yes, The Olympics! I try to catch a glimpse every chance I get. It would be so awesome to be able to travel abroad and see inperson. Thanks for the share and wishin' you an awesome Sunday!
