Now this is a meme that I can have fun with and keep the blogtober ball rolling too!
So if you haven't figured it out, I just coined Op-shopping October. So this month, raid your local charity, second hand or Opportunity store and share the Optober love!
My local Sally Army store has decided to start selling buttons, so I walked in and the first thing I saw was button jars and spent the next 10 minutes picking and choosing like a kid in a lolly shop.
So what is the going rate for buttons in your area? Here it is 5c ea for small and 10c for large. Just wish there WERE large buttons. I have to say though, it felt weird, swapping small pieces of round plastic for the equivalent small round pieces of metal. Hmm. Feeling a bit like swapping my cow for a bag of magic beans. Pity they aren't interchangeable, often the only thing in my purse is a wad of ancient receipts, a bit of lint and a few buttons. I have actually pulled out the buttons before today but haven't had any takers at the checkout yet lol. (more fool them)
Of course there is a bulk deal, buy a small ziplock bag for $5. My bag contained 65 buttons. Um, bargain?
