    Default Zipper & Button-palooza !

    I had to go to the "Big City" yesterday to go to the pet supply store. I needed to get our Shepherds a new waterer as the one they had sprung a leak and dumped 5 gallons of water at the bottom of our stairwell. Ugh! I decided that if I was going to drive 30 mins, I might as well see if there were any garage sales. I found one and look what I got!

    100 BRAND NEW ZIPPERS AND 150 CARDED BUTTONS for only $15!!!!! The elderly woman running the sale was so sweet and she was asking 25 cents apiece for both the buttons and the zippers. I grabbed both boxes and told her "Let's Make a Deal!" She set the price, I didn't haggle. She also threw in a yard of vintage fabric and an old Simplicity Pattern for smocked pillows. It was a good day; I got a button & zipper fix and our dogs don't have to drink out of the toilet anymore!

    For me, the zippers are to die for! I use so many zippers in crafts and costumes and they cost a fortune! Have fun with your excellent find!

    How lucky are you? I never seem to catch great sales like this.

    Jean I met this guy at the latest Madison, WI quilt expo. https://trimsonwheels.com/ He has some great deals on zippers and trims.

    Mine too love the zippers - I don't use metal tooth ones though because most of the stuff I do requires stitching over the teeth and that's not what sewing machine needles like to eat for breakfast . . .
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    nice find! I haven't really been able to go to any tag sales this year - I'm going to shoot for Columbus day, there are usually a ton around here!
