I love to buy those little grab bags of buttons at thrift stores.
You just never know what you'll get; these three ranged in price from 99 cents to $1.99 each.
They yielded lots of plain, pedestrian buttons.
And some non-button stuff, like these glass beads (or charms.)
And these stick pins, and stick pin bases. Won't those bases look cute with buttons attached for simple pins?
Then these modern buttons, which remind me of cat eyes.
Some metal, and shell set in metal.
And then this assortment; I love the large, shiny grey shell buttons.
And wouldn't those penny buttons look cute on a President's Day themed tag?
I think that's where they're headed.
These two were my favorites!
All in all, it wasn't a bad haul for the money
And the few dollars I paid for the three bags was well worth the thrill of the hunt, to me.
