I Need Buttons!

Recently I have found myself being pulled inexplicably towards mixed media work. I have this vague idea in my head of doing a piece made entirely of buttons but am finding it difficult to collect enough unique buttons myself...

If anyone has any idea of any neat places to find buttons OR you have some mismatched ones you don't want, let me know! In the meantime maybe this idea will stew enough to get some more traction.

I've often found buttons at yard sales... usually in bunches. Good luck.

Oooh thanks. I don't know why I didn't see before, but I remembered there are vintage button sellers on etsy, too...

Ebay has the best buttons and if you really want some wonderful, interesting buttons... ETSY is your best place! You just have to take the time to search! Altered Art piece challenging you with buttons? This will be so fun! What type of buttons are you looking for and I will keep an eye open for you. Maybe I might have some in my "trinkets and treasures"....
Hugs,

Hi Yvette!

I was trying to get a diverse range - just anything funky or vintage probably.

Do you have a shop on etsy? I was just curious cuz I do, too!
