THIS looked like the dirtiest bag of buttons. It was $4 but I spied what looked like a few big, could-it-be-Bakelite buttons. Turns out there were four Bakelite buttons and a half dozen ceramic buttons, four with a floral pattern. There was a plastic New Zealand souvenir Tiwi, the pictured belt buckle and swag of other bits and bobs.

Elsewhere I picked up a few more pairs of earrings. Check out the gold and Perspex numbers at the back. And what about those animal print earring? They’re lacquered wood. I’m not sure what the green and bone-coloured earrings are made of. They’re both fitted with older style clip-on backs. The bone-coloured earring isn’t bone and the green has a metallic fleck in it.
