Vintage Button Shopping

As every good crafter knows, supplies shopping is the BEST kind of shopping.

I stumbled across a charity shop with an overflowing button box yesterday and after a good rummage bought myself these lovelies:

With more eco flowers in my wip pile I've got a reason to stock up on pretty vintage buttons, but really who needs a reason to buy such nice things?

Ooooooh yum! And weren't you restrained. I normally buy the whole tub!

I SO wish we had charity shops like yours, mine are always such horrible, filthy dumps :( There are VERY few in my area that are clean. It's almost like trash picking minus the food refuse :(

I too would have had to bring back the whole tub, but I shared half of my button stash with a student who was asking for them on freecycle- so my buttons are technically earmarked for a project!
