Buttons???

karpetApril 15, 2011

I think it was about a year ago someone on this forum acquired quite a stash of buttons. There is something in me that thinks it would be so fun to have a big bunch of buttons to go through - not sure why because I would never use all of them - I guess it's kind of like a kid with legos!

Well, I found this ad on our craigslist and just thought I'd share the picture with you - how is this for some buttons???

This is interesting as it is only a few miles from me. I was surprised at the quanity she has. It would be so much fun to play with them but I wouldn't have the space to consider inquireing.. Jayne

That's a lot of buttons. How does one come by two huge metal crates of buttons?

I'm the one with the bunch of buttons. My mother got me almost 3 gallons of them at an auction. The grands had fun going through them and separating/playing with them.

That is a huge collection of buttons, it would take a long time to get that many.

But, not if you buy that crate! I used to give the twins a plastic needle and ask if they would string all the ?? anything buttons while I sewed. They loved it ....so did I.......win-win.

Neighbors! Don't you miss having Chuck Bailey's store in Geneseo? I do, new location is a bit far for me.

My DH bought my machine from them after they moved over to Leicester so I've only gone to the new location for service. I just found out that there is a book fair at the the Coverlet Museum in Palmyra on 4/30 and 5/1. DH was told that there would be lots of quilt books there. I had never heard of it before but am curious.

I went to the Museum several years ago but have not heard of the book fair. They did have an interesting display of woven coverlets and a sm. display of crazy quilts by a local person. If you pass thru Canandaigua feel free to visit and become acquainted. Jayne

Thanks Jayne! Are there any good fabric places over there? The only one east of me that I know of is in Victor.

Beverly - Just curious what you've done with your 3 gallons of buttons?!? I'm sure your grands have had a lot of fun with them!
