Our local auction house is having an online button auction. The buttons are from the estate of a long time button collector. I'm not really a button person, but I am curious as to how well these will sell!

I am a little curious myself. There are loads of buttons of all sorts on ebay.. which are too tempting for me. so I don't peruse that category often.. Its a shame these never made it onto garments.. but I can see collecting them would be fun.. and they don't take up as much space as say...featherweights..

Looks like fun, but haven't a clue what I would do with them, if anything.

Oh, I know what I'd do with them! I make broaches out of them- which sell quite well. I don't really "need" any more buttons, but you never know......

Connie, my husband will never know it was you who told me about this....
