Fuchsia buttons!

I had *one* button on a card (left over from some previous project)  
which perfectly matched some fabric I bought yesterday to make a new  
top, but they were no longer at the fabric store(s), and no other  
buttons were even close to the color.  :-(   I bought some covered  
button kits to make matching buttons, but I was not entirely happy  
with that solution.

I searched the maker's (Dill-Buttons.com) online site, but no luck.  
So taking a flyer, I plugged the item number into eBay, and one  
seller had ten cards!  Better yet, the selling price was the  
original marked on the card, and the shipping was reasonable.  Six  
beautiful oddly-shaped fuchsia buttons

the way.

Never would have thought to do that before.  What did we do before  
the internet?  ;-D

We would have accepted the inevitable and thought of a different solution.  
Mankind has existed for several thousand years in a somewhat civilized way  
before the internet was there - why should we be helpless without it?  
(Although I do admit that I really love to be in touch with people all over  
the world in such a comfortable way.;-) ) Maybe a bit like this? ;-)

Whenever there is something I want or need and cannot find it
locally I always search eBay.  95% of the time I can what I
need there.  Sometimes I will find something locally and their
price is ridiculous and I can score it on eBay and save money.
The only downfall is waiting for it to arrive in the mail.
