Buttons galore

For some time now I've being searching the net for vintage buttons! Do you know how much a job lot of these go for! Its ridiculous really! I've scoured the car boot and charity shops for them but everyone must have the same desire cause I just cannot find them, so I resorted to Ebay.
Some job lots of vintage buttons were going for over £30! with postage added on top!

Anyways I managed to bag myself some finally! Finally...
My dear sweet buddy Rosie popped over for coffee Friday night and I showed her my winnings and she was like 'oooh' and 'ahhhh' so we sat for at least a couple of hours! sorting them out into colours (I know sad arent we, but we do craft what do you expect!)
I have some amazing sets of gorgeous buttons which I can see being used on recycled wool brooches :) and there's going to be lots of bags and sets going in my Etsy store.
Rosie went home a tad happy too with a jar full of delicious buttons for all her help :)

    My lips are sealed, but you know what I'm about to say.. that almost constitutes ribbon into colour land...
