Default Where do you buy your buttons??

I have been making lots of cute hairbows lately and want to do some cute button centers on some of them. Where do you buy your buttons (& they aren't too expensive!?)

I've only bought at HL in their sewing section, and I'm paying about $1.99 for 2 buttons... they're nothing special, either.

Google button suppliers that should help a bit. That is how I found some of mine. I do buy them also from Joann's, Hobby Lobby and Michaels. It depends on where the sales are. Sometimes the fine women on the forum host button buys. You could also do a search for buttons on here. I do a lot of researching. It does get boring but that is how you find the best deals. Good Luck!!

Search, Bing, and Google. Then you can decide which company to go with.

friends' clothing they're gonna trash & thrift stores that have blouses that i think will make good singed flowers - if the buttons are great, then i buy it!

Walmart has them too. But in the scarpbrook section you can also find them at HL.
