The other thing I wanted to share was the wonderful button lady I saw at a local church flea market. She had two tables of the most fantastic buttons, buttons like I have never seen seen in my life! Make sure you click on the pictures to get a close up of all this button goodness!
My camera batteries died before I could get more than these two pictures, but this gives you an idea of the kind of goodies she had. The ones below, mother of pearl and onyx. Gorgeous! This lady was so sweet and personable and talked with me for quite some time. She said buttons are the nuber three collectible after coins and stamps. She was headed for a button convention the following week. Her largest sale to a private buyer was $13,000! Can you even imagine spending that on buttons! I can't, I have two kids in college and that certainly keeps the button lust in check, lol.
