After you read this post, you may be embarrassed that you know me.
I decided that I would make my granddaughter a button bracelet...quick, easy, cute. So I googled "buttons". I identified a vendor that was within driving distance and decided to give them a call first...
Ring...Hello, Benno's Buttons...Hello, I located your store on the internet...do you carry buttons...yes we do...do you have a good supply of buttons...yes we do. (Nothing is worse than driving to somewhere and being disappointed with what the vendor has to offer.)
Still unsure of whether this was futile 17 mile trip, I headed over to Benno's Buttons. Well, I arrived, walked in the store and knew immediately that I had made a "grave" mistake. I should have NEVER actually went to Benno's Buttons. I should have just ordered what I wanted on their website. Here is why...
DOES BENNO'S BUTTONS HAVE BUTTONS? Uh...yea...and trims!
So what did I come home with...BUTTONS!!!
And of course with all those metal buttons I had to make a bracelet that evening....Cute huh?They even had a sale rack for discontinued buttons. Of course I grabbed up some excellent bargains!!!
So I am a little embarrased that I asked them if they had buttons. If you live in the Dallas area, stop by and tell them a blogger buddy sent you!
