If anyone is looking for some really special buttons how about these?

I like the third set down, but they would need to be sewn on very securely!

Pair them up with this fabric. NB: Croft Mill will soon be tipped off about the printing error so for those who miss it, this fabric is advertised for sale at £2500.00 a metre.

@BrendaP: indeed.  You wouldn't want to lose one of those.
@Puzzler: is it spun from unicorn tails?

What printing error? I can't see it and I've already ordered ten metres to go with my nice gold buttons!  :o

I'm just getting lured in by a Blissy silk pillow case, although a mere £55 in comparison with your lovely buttons.

But where will you put your buttons?
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

There’s 10% off those buttons and therefore they are a bargain.

Given that I've lost my whole button box, I don't think I could be trusted with these.
