I am desperately looking for a good company that sells a wide variety of buttons, for shirts, suits dresses etc. I am also looking for donations if any is available. Thanks.

Kari, if you are seeking donations, try posting in the "wanted" section of your local CraigsList. My parents generation saved buttons and some of us "inherited" the button jars. Since fewer people sew these days, they may be willing to part with them.

You can also buy buttons by the pound. There are sites on line but also check stores where you live. Sears used to sell them by the 2 pound bag, years ago when they still sold fabric. I bought 6 pounds and I'm still using them. The trouble is that often none of them match what I'm sewing. Over the years though I have used enough of them to save plenty over buying them by the card.
