My Button Finds Today




I think I've mentioned before that I don't do a lot of shopping. I do the grocery store, things the kids need, etc., but I don't do shopping for fun or sport. Today I went out to 5 stores (shudder): Target, post office, JoAnn's, Kohl's and the grocery store. When I was at JoAnn's, after I found what I needed (black ribbon for a necklace idea) I decided to have a look at the buttons. WOW! SO many buttons, so little money! Here's a look at what I got today! Fun! (Excuse the photos - crop to mask and me don't really get along).

Great buttons! What super finds :o)

Despite what some may think, I don't really like shopping that much - with the exception of Michael's and the bead shop (and sometimes Target cause it's a cool store)...Other than that, I could really do without!

Oh yes, I visited that button aisle in Joanne's. It should be banned. You got some get finds today. Any idea what you'll do with these goodies?

I've bought quite a few unusual buttons at Joanne's, there's always something new and different there! Have fun with them!

Wow - very cool. I love those skull buttons!

A quick tip if you don't know it. Get on both Jo-Ann's mailing list and their email list. You will get coupons both places and unlike Michael's you can use them all. (My Michael's will let you use one of their coupons and one competitor coupon.)

Really great finds! It would be fun to see what you do with them because I'm at a loss as how to use buttons and would find it very interesting.
