BUTTONS!

If you have seen my latest couple of LO's you must have noticed that I'm kind of into buttons :)
I LOVE buttons!
Tuesday I seemed to run out of buttons so I needed to get me some.
I went to the market in the afternoon but didn't really find what I was looking for. Buttons are so expensive here, at least 0,25 € a piece! OK, if you only need 5 or 6 that's not such a big deal, but if you want a LOT in all different colors and shapes and sizes, because you don't know yet what exactly you'll be needing, then you have a problem.
Suddenly I had this idea... I went home, sat down at my computer and searched "marktplaats" (like ebay but in dutch).
And this is what I found:



Someone wanted to get rid of a box with 2 kilos of buttons!
Yesterday the box arrived and this is what I sorted out so far, there's much more!
Just gotta love buttons!

Enjoy your day!
Birgit

Very pretty!!! I guess if I was a drug dealer, I would have a better idea of how much 2 Kilos is...ha ha!(I think they are the only ones in the USA that use the metric system)Let me know if you ever need me to pick up something for you in the US and I can ship it to you. I can make it to the post office much easier these days. Looking forward to seeing how you use those pretty buttons. Hey, post some house pictures. I am dying to see your new place!
