Question 1" Button Maker-worth having one if you do not make bows?

My Mom's neighbor has a 1" button maker that she wants to sell (cannot be used with fabric). She is 90 years old and doesn't know why she even has it...lol. I told her what they cost new so she says she will sell it for $100. It is only the machine, no accessories or anything. I am kind of tempted to buy it, but I do not make bows. I make scrabble tile & bottle cap necklaces. I am planning on opening an Etsy store soon so I was thinking I could sell the buttons on there, but not sure if it would be worth it or not. I just hate passing up a good deal I guess I could probably make necklaces out of the buttons..idk. Any opinions? Since I do not make bows, should I not even bother buying it? This is what it looks like.



Thanks!

BUY IT! You can make the buttons for bow centers plus you can even sell them.

If that's a Tecre machine (or however you spell it, sold by American Button Machines and others), it's a GREAT machine. We have one at school, and I find it super easy to use, and the buttons come out great every time (once you get the hang of it). You can go to their website and see all of the supplies they have available. You can make some cool stuff with it.

And you certainly will be able to make your money back if you decide you don't use it enough!

I do have this machine (dont use it nearly enough! ) But yes, it is a great machine, easy to use, and they do have some cool stuff on their website!

PS- girls who are interested in buying it better go in a flat rate, because that sucker is HEAVY!!!
