|New recently created and bought buttons. Please note the price difference. The price increase shows how much our dollar has deflated in 2011.|

Today I want to tell you that a dollar isn't much as much as it used to be. There fore it takes a lot more dollars to buy the same sort of items. While in the antique malls looking for vintage patterns, I also look for vintage buttons with vintage prices. Above, I have pictures of the buttons then and now. This forces store owners to increase their prices. The new Holiday buttons will be incorporated into some of my upcoming items. I am purposely keeping my prices to a minimum as a special gift to my customers.
