Button, Button, Who's got the Button?

I've got the button(s)!!
At least once a month I try to stop in to "treasure hunt" at our local Good Will store.  So yesterday I spy this tin of buttons. The tag reads 99 cents so I ask the lady behind the desk to retrieve it from its glass casing.  She looks at me mysteriously and says "that can't be right!" The buttons are sellng for a dime a piece. I did notice some additional buttons marked as such ~ however; this particular container was marked 99 cents. She called another assistant to question her on the price and she  responded "it's marked .99 so sell it for .99"  
Now I'm not a so called "button collector" but when I saw such a variety of buttons it caught my eye right away.  I do have some crafting ideas in mind. 
So that's my "deal of the day!"

My mom also had a tin of buttons! I think I still have them somewhere. It brought back such memories!

You really did get a great deal on the buttons. I love buttons too. I have a heart shaped tin of buttons that was my Mom's. I treasure it so dear. She had some stories that went with some of her buttons. Where this one or that came from and so on.
Unfortunately, I don't remember any of the stories. But I do treasure the memories of Mom and her buttons.
