Twice this summer I've helped friends out at their garage sales and
brought along my button tub, offering folks the chance to play in the
buttons and fill a bag for $1. At each sale, I sold just a few, but it
was totally worthwhile to bring the tub along for that one or two women
who were completely delighted by it. Last time, a preschool teacher
filled a bag of the largest ones to use in crafting with her kids.
Yesterday, two teen aged girls spent about 20 minutes hand picking each
button to fill their bag. They would show each other their finds and
"ooh" and "ahh" over each one. Button Floozies in the making!
Button Floozies is devoted to buttons and the women who love them. For many of us, button love began when played with our mothers' and grandmothers' button tins as children and has grown through the years. The Button Floozies blog is written by many contributors; they are listed below under the heading "Button Floozies". Whether you collect, or just admire, all things tiny and fabulous, join us as we show our treasures, and the things of beauty we create with buttons! -- Laurie email@example.com
