One of my husband's relatives has owned a dry cleaning business for many years. She told me that I could go into any dry cleaner and ask to look at their "Button Box". If you ask, they will allow you to select what you want free of charge. I've done this several times and have found beautiful old antique buttons. Of course, there is usually just one, but for a one button closure, they're great. Apparently, this is something that dry cleaners just don't throw away, "just in case".

I find that antique shops often have a "button box" and sell them very cheaply, usually .10-.25 ea.
