What did I pick from that fabulous sale??????

Here is the answer to the question from my last post~

I bought all those wooden boxes from the Type Metal Company.

And, I bought pounds of old books.

Finally, I bought many baskets~ flower and picnic.

The picture is from another weekend bulk purchase.... buttons, and more buttons! I have spent the last two days playing with my buttons getting them ready to sell.

What volume purchases can't you resist??????


  1. Don't really purchase anything in volume, but I bring home oodles of shells, rocks & found objects. They're displayed, tucked away, for creating, for gifts... always come home with a sack full of nature's goods.

    Happy day to you :-)

  2. Hi Joan! Happy Summer to you, too. Looks like a FABULOUS sale; that's something I really miss about the Chicago area -- auctions are no where near as fun to shop! Looking foward to seeing you sometime soon. xo

  3. Buttons. I like to buy buttons. Glitter and game pieces run a close second! Looks like a great sale.


  4. I really don't buy things in volume, but I do love those buttons. I also love big jars of marbles...I don't have any of either here.

  5. I have more volumes of stuff now than I need. I try hard to resist buying too much anymore. You have a big batch of buttons to play with.

  6. That's a hard question. I used to be addicted to wintergreen lifesavers and would buy 10 bags at a time..but that's not what you meant I'm sure.
    If I could I would have bought all those boxes too.
    Hope you're having a good summer!

  7. I must say my weekness is paper,
    I have way too much, but when ever I am out and about I always find beautiful paper I cannot live without! But I do love those Buttons! Seeing that picture brings a big smile to my face!

  8. I've never purchased in volume either. Interesting and sound like some fun. I love buttons!

  9. Oh my...after being in the biz for ten years now I'd have to say... what haven't I bought in volume? You just never know what you are going to find. Books and magazines mostly but we have had our fair share of almost everything! Cards, ribbon, material, ....once hubby brought home a box of newspaper print blocks !!!!(forget the name of thwm now)

  10. Oh my goodness, I love buttons and it looks like you found the best ones EVER! Have a blessed day, HUGS!
