It's a big antique show held in an expo center -- full of friendly vendors and TONS of beautiful things...
like this "poke bowl" full of buttons! Did you see the charm string sitting just to the left of it? I HAD to take it home with me!
Someone who loved her buttons put it together...
and added some other little trinkets, too.
The buttons are not particularly valuable but I thought it was so charming that, for $10, it was irresistible.
I also grabbed these little "gems" from the poke bowl: a large rhinestone-metal button, missing a few stones but I love it anyway, a pink plastic flower with a sparkly paste center, a two-toned yellow plastic, diamond-shaped one, a velvet fabric button, and a "tight-top."
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
