I have a current auction on ebay for a good size lot of buttons.
4.5 pounds of them. Mixed sizes and colors.
Great for sewing projects or craft ideas.
I will ship them the cheapest way possible.
I normally only sell USA but I will consider Canada if you email me first either through ebay or here to get a shipping quote.

I sure hope that you have sold these - I am soooooo tempted!! Perhaps I'll just take a peek!!

I knew I shouldn't have looked - that is a beautiful collection. Sigh!!

I love old buttons. I just have too many of them.
If you do some research on ebay for ended auctions, you will see some big $$ when they get put up, in bigger pound lots.
I rarely sew anymore unless it is some mending.
But I do knit and crochet ,especially this time of year :)

I'm still thinking. Don't use buttons much anymore - styles are definitely different - think my purchase would be to enjoy the buttons for their personalities and uniqueness!!

If you PM, and give me the zipcode, I would be glad to get you a shipping quote.
I think they can go in a usps box easy, that is the same price no matter the distance. Flat rate. Not sure I have a box here but I could get one tomorrow at the post office and check for you.

Zipcode is 96761. Temptation is calling my name!!

I will get a box tomorrow. I will take the buttons with me, so I can find a flat rate box to fit them.
I would like to give you a quote right now, but I am not sure of the dimensions of the flat rate boxes.
I usually ship media for books and I can figure them real quick at home. Not so good with the flat rate boxes.

Okay - I'll be looking forward to see what you discover!!
If one lives closer to me, than one of the other rates might be less.
( in case anyone else wants to bid )

I just pulled out 19 more pounds of buttons.
Not sure how to put them up.
Thinking of breaking down into 2 or 3 lots.
I am not a button person so not real sure how to lot them.
Just going to do a lot and call it *estate lot as found*
