Lot of (160) Teeny Tiny NOS Mother of Pearl Shell Buttons

As per our convo, this listing is for the remaining 160 shell buttons.

If you have ever looked for teeny shell buttons, you know how hard they are to find. I'm not talking merely small, but very small, such as these. You will receive the first 100 buttons I pull from my magical baggie of buttons. There seems to be a couple of styles, mostly with a carved border, but some are plain. So with 100 buttons, you will end up with many matching buttons/sets. There are also a couple of sizes, the larger buttons (most of them) are 5/16" in diameter, the others a hair smaller. So all of these are right around 1/4". These are unused, so in marvelous condition! I have multiple lots of these, so if you need more, I probably have them. A penny (see photo) is 3/4" in diameter. Great to have on hand for a multitude of projects.

I have an amazing amount of Mother or Pearl buttons. If you need more like this, or some other type, let me know. I probably have it!

I sometimes use recycled or reused shipping materials in fabulous condition. Let me know if this is a problem for you.

The US Post Office has raised its rates. In particular, the very small packages are now much more expensive to ship. A 1 ounce package has gone up over 100%. I hate it. Unfortunately, there isn’t anything I can do about it.

I have come up with three ways to help combat this increase for small packages. Here’s what I can do for you:

1) I will refund shipping fees you pay on Etsy above the actual postage fee to ship your package. This means I will absorb any costs for packing materials or handling.

2) I am also offering a “Buy and Save Now, Ship Later” plan to you. Here’s how it works:
You may make purchases over a period of time. When you are ready for shipment, I will package your goods, ship them to you and send you a refund over the exact shipping cost. Take advantage of combined weight shipping instead of paying higher fees more frequently. Just let me know when you pay for your purchase you would like to wait to ship. I will keep track of the accounting and set aside your items for you.

3) The good news is I can ship up to 8 ounces for the same price as 1 ounce. That’s right, it costs the same for me to ship you 1 set of buttons as 10 sets. You can purchase multiple items for the same shipping fee.

And Furthermore...I am always happy to ship to you. I package well and have never had a problem with breakage. However, I cannot reimburse you for packages that go missing unless you have purchased insurance and tracking. Please let me know within 24 hours if you would like to insure your package and I will send you an invoice for the cost. Otherwise, your package will be shipped via First Class International and you will carry the risk.

I have shipped hundreds of overseas packages, and 99.99% of the time they arrive without a hitch. Certain countries have less reliable postal systems and you probably know if you live in one of those and can make the insurance decision accordingly. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I sincerely thank you for your purchase. I have hundreds of happy customers all over the world, and am most appreciative of your business!

Kind Regards,

Returns & exchanges

I've gone for years without a specific Return Policy as I feel each transaction is its own and problems can be worked out without a lot of rules in place by simply communicating with my customer. If you are thinking of ordering something you are unsure about or have other concerns, please contact me beforehand and we can work something out.

Additional policies

Seller is NOT responsible for customs fees and import taxes imposed on Buyer by their country of residence. Falsifying customs declaration forms in order to help a Buyer avoid these taxes and fees is against the law, and comes with a punishment of up to $10,000 USD with the possibility of up to 5 years of imprisonment. For further information about these laws go to If you have questions about fees, taxes, customs, etc. please contact your local authorities. I do appreciate your understanding in these matters.
