For Sale ... Buttons, Beautiful Buttons
« on: April 29, 2017, 19:01:32 PM »
Malaising the day away, unable to get started on the almost finished Quilt (WHY???)
I suddenly, for no reason thought of my long ignored button box and the delights held within!

When i used to be a get up and goer I had a (very, very) small concern making waistcoats to fit anybody and everybody and I  (ahem!) accrued a great many glorious buttons...
that since have laid quietly in the Button box...Until now!

I am now offering these buttons for sale at the prices I paid(ish) in the '90's.

There may be the perfect button for you, a twin to the one lost on your favourite outfit or just something darling that you couldn't bear not to have ....

Whatever, I am open to reasonable offers on multiples and all prices include 1st class postage!

so step inside The Button Bazaar........

Why isn't my button box all sparkly like that? Mine is full of browns going back to the 1940s/50s, admittedly it was mum's before I got it. The Caesar's head buttons are familiar though what they were on beats me.

Immensely impressed with you taking pics of them all!! So many lovely ones too!! I'm restricting myself to ones I would have immediate use for otherwise my list may be longer ;)

Thanks for your enthusiastic  response Ladies,

I am offering these for sale exclusively to the Sewing Place members this Bank Holiday weekend.
On Tuesday I will add the album to my FB page for the wider world to have a chance to own them.

There are some real gems in there, nicely made and quite unique in a few cases, think handmade ceramic poppies!

Any purchases over this weekend will be sent out first class on Tuesday morning!
