    I don't sew anymore, but that would have been a great nostalgia thing. When I was little my grandmother had a big jar of buttons. I would lie on the floor for hours sorting them -- by color, by size, by numbers of holes, shiny ones and dull ones, plastic and wood and mother of pearl or metal....

    Ok. I was a weird kid.

    Dcompton - you were certainly not a weird kid - a lot of us grew up with button jars - a very soothing thing to do. And - as a teacher -I cannot begin to tell you how important that activity was and still is for children - and I know of very few who participate in such a great memory making activity!!

    I too, figured out that first auction did well
    Not real sure why, but I was quite happy about it.
    And the buyer has already paid too.

    I like buttons. I had some growing up when Mom was teaching me to sew. And it was always neat to sit down for a hour or so, and sort them. I saved buttons from clothes that ended up in the ragbag and kept adding to the jars.
    I pick them up whenever I see them at the right price.
    Nothing like sitting down with old memories

    I haven't found my old personal stash yet. Seems I buried them in a tote here somewhere. But they will surface
    Kind of like fondling yarn I think...........

    Make us two weird kids. You mean that it wasn't normal? Hmm...I can remember it. And I had forgotten the memory. Thanks for bringing it back DC. Such a simple thing but I'm feeling teary here. Those were the simple days weren't they. Mother and Grandma were still alive, young and vibrant. And those buttons!!!!

    Ok, sorry for posting for the 3rd time. Read your Ebay About Me page. That was so totally my favorite song when I was little. I sang it all the time and had it on a 45. Remember those? Your page is beautiful. It definitely touched me. Your writing is a gift ( the beginning ). You have talent.

    I had my old car up there for the longest time.
    I just took it off that page about a month ago.

    Many many years ago, ebay had my mepage on one of their monthly newsletters. I was pretty tickled about that. I think they used to pick 3 a month.

    Probably afraid that I would get addicted to get deals and things that I just had to have from the comfort of home!! Sometimes I find it best just not to tempt myself. Now that money is so tight, I figure that I can start looking around.

    I built a auction for someone who wants to make a button jar.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=320443431619

    Please tell me what you think
    I did everything I could to keep the cost down for shipping.

    Actually I have 2 auctions up currently for buttons.

    Might as well. Is anyone selling anything on FV? I thought there was a sales section, but have not really looked around alot. What I did see seemed to be old.
