Buttons For Sale At The Polka Dot Flea

I have Soooo many vintage buttons that I have decided to sell some at the Polka Dot Flea


I had an old wooden box that I painted and lined with pattern paper then glued on a few graphics with the price



I don't know why but......I love buttons!


I hope the Polka Dot Flea shoppers love buttons.....I think $2.00 a card is a pretty fair price?


Be sure to check out the Polka Dot Flea website and FB page!




Happy Creating!
Carol

OH-I LOVE your buttons. I have lots of buttons that belonged to my mother and hubby's grandmother. I love just looking at them.

Hope you had a great day- xo Diana

oh my goodness! I LOVE buttons! that's a great deal!!! I wish kids were taught to sew like we all were in the "old days".....such an invaluable skill...and so much fun shopping for fabric and buttons and patterns and trim :) your flea is going to be AH-MAZING~

Connie said...

Hi Carol, I love buttons, too!
And what a lovely box you created to display yours :)

Kelley said...

I love them, too! I even save the vintage-y cards after the buttons are gone and either stitch more old mismatched buttons to them or make unique bookmarks out of them.

Button love,
Kelley~

What a pretty display they make, Carol! I love buttons and love looking at them. Whether they are new or at an estate sale I always looked through the buttons. Not sure why, but I certainly like having a large selection to choose from when I am making something that could use a button to finish it off.

You are not only clever you are generous! To part with your buttons for only $2 is making me even sadder I shall miss your amazing Polka Dot Flea! Love the box display too. Creative Button Bliss Dear...

You'll probably sell a ton of buttons.

This all looks fabulous.

I have loved buttons ever since I used to dig through my grandmother's button box. Regarding pricing, I went to the Calif. state button show last weekend and buttons on cards were selling for $4 each, so your price seems low to me.

You sure do know how to create a "buzz" about this Polka Dot Flea!! I love buttons too and am sure we must be kindred spirits based on all the stuff you post, make and share because I love it all.

Bente said...

Oh yes, I love them too, and I sure love the lace lampshades under here. They are GORGEOUS.

Big hug from here

What's not to love about a box full of pretty vintage buttons. You are so clever with the way you decorated the box.

What a cute display! You are so creative. I think the price is very fair:)xoKathleen

Debbie said...

Definitely a fair price. I love vintage buttons. My mom has a huge stash of them, but instead of having them nicely collected on cards, we have to search through the stash for matchies if we want them.

You did such a cute job of display, too.

The Flea is getting closer!

Jamie @ Domestically Vintage said...

Hi, Carole! I love vintage buttons. I think that's a good price. I only have a small jar of buttons on display in my home so I haven't ever bought a lot. Continued success with the polka dot flea! ~ Jamie

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Hi Carol, Love all the vintage buttons. I am sure you will sell bunches and your display will really set them off well. It's getting close!! How are you doing? Do you feel ready? You are going to be great and the flea a huge success!!
Hugs

That is a very fair price! I think it's good to have some smalls for those with a tight budget! ♥

Beth L. said...

I love buttons. I use them in crafting. I keep them in jars to enjoy. And recently I even made some flowers with some of the pretty colored ones. I sell buttons in my antique shop and love to hear the reasons people buy them!

Ros Crawford said...

Your box looks terrific!!

Curtains in My Tree said...

Oh I wish I could be there to dig through that bokk and touch the buttons, I have collected now several years and still love my old vintage button collection.
I bet you sell every card of buttons

Curtains in My Tree said...

Cynthia said...

Carol what a great collection of buttons. $2 is a great price.

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

I think I almost love the cards for old buttons and sewing supplies more than the supplies themselves . . . and those original prices?! Crazy -- by those standards, you ARE a bit overpriced -- LOL

Kathy said...

You do not have to explain loving buttons to ME!! Dang, I wish I wasn't so far away. 8+(

Little Miss Maggie said...

I love old buttons too especially when they are still on the original card backing. I can't believe your flea market is coming up so soon. It's right around the corner.

lynn said...

love how you dressed up the button keeper, carol! you always make things look so special...even vintage buttons:) happy weekend!

hopeandjoyhome said...

I am a total button hoarder! They are just so colorful and fun. I like the flower shaped ones and the mother of pearl ones and cards with fun graphics (just a heads up your $2 a BAG may cause some confusion as some may think they can fill a bag for $2 instead of $2 a card)..unless $2 a bagful is what you meant..and if it is I should be getting in the car! :) $2 per card is great..they cost more than that new!

pipigirl said...

me too!! lol. i sorted all mine out by basic color and put them in pretty little jars/bottles and displayed them in my childrens hutch in my dining room. i rather like them..... alot terrible huh:)

Shelly said...

I love buttons too. I think that is a very fair price.

Terry Mann said...

Your box looks wonderful.
Seems a fair price on the buttons to me.

Your show will be fantastic, wish I could attend:-(

Lynn @The Vintage Nest said...

Button....button.....whose got the button? Carol does...thats who! What a cute cute idea Carol! I can see customers now pawing thru all those buttons. :) xo

Nora Miller said...
