who's got the buttons?

I got a suspiciously large amount of orders for buttons over the past few days. Not that I'm complaining—that's the whole point, isn't it? Then I noticed that several customers, in the section where I ask where they've heard of Primrose Design, said Ready Made magazine. Hmmm, news to me that I was in the magazine. So, I stopped by Borders this morning, grabbed a copy and, sure enough, there I am.

It's part of The Ten Spot: On our radar this month and the short article talks a little bit about how crafters are using vintage buttons. Primrose Design is mentioned as one of the sources for them. Pretty cool!

I do know that many of my regular customers are crafters and use the buttons they buy for jewelry, children's clothing, and handbags.

I've been debating lately whether or not to add a fourth page to the plastic buttons section. These are my favorite buttons and also my biggest sellers. I have boxes full of buttons to be sold and this week purchased another estate lot so I now have even more. But, they're selling so quickly right now that I'll be frantically refilling that third page! The fourth may just have to wait!
