There was also a small collection of old European buttons. They were gorgeous and intricate, and priced at $7-$12 per button. I couldn't bring myself to pay that, so I took a picture. I guess I kind of got to bring them all home that way.
After nearly two hours in the tiny little antique store, I finally decided on three bags, priced at $6, $8 and $14. Yep, I paid $14 for a sandwich bag half full of these buttons.
And here are a few of my favorites from the big bag.
And, being the genius he is, my boyfriend suggested I use the old drawer I bought a few weeks back to organize the buttons. Funny how things work out sometimes, isn't it?
I'm going to start adding some of the buttons to my embroidery projects, so keep an eye on my Etsy shop!
