Button Bonanza

I found a button bonanza at my local thrift today -- these bags had just been put out and I got first pick! I didn't intend to buy so many, but every bag I looked at had more wonderful buttons & buckles in it than the last. Have you ever seen so many buttons in one place? The cashier lost count and even charged me for one extra bag, but I don't mind because it's the Salvation Army & I know it will help someone out.

I can hardly wait to finish up my work on my day job so I can play with my new (old) buttons! My head is fairly spinning with ideas for projects to use them on...

omg! Thats incredible - how much did they charge you per bag? In my local charity shop its rare to find buttons and when i do they cost the earth. I bet you will have so much fun going through the bags and seeing what you've got. :o) Scarlett

Scarlett, they were only 99 cents a bag! Thanks for the question -- I've added that info to the post. Buttons are hard to find at our shop, as well.
