Show-n-tell... Beads, Buckles, Buttons & Dress trim from my 2010 European vacation

Recently I blogged & reminisced about my 2010 trip to England & France.  
Here are a few of the beads, buckles, buttons and dress trim that came home with me from England & France...

(The top three rows of stenciled pottery buttons were purchased from the Victoria & Albert museum gift shop.  Their images are from textiles that are on display at the museum)

These are what I dug from the china dump in Briare, France
