Thank you for stopping by Sentimental Journey where you are always first in the door. knowing I am one of the original sellers from back in 1998 and have over 6100 feedback.WE ARE SHIPPING NEARLY EVERY DAY TO ASSURE DELIVERY BY CHRISTMAS. ALSO GIVING YOU A BUY NOW OPTION WHEN POSSIBLE. Here you have nine (9) vintage buttons. Beautiful full-cut facet details in mother of pearl MOP; centers are steel cut facets with teensy flower petal. metal/steel? "0" shanks. SIZE: 1/2 inch diameter. I'd rate these SWEET! that means in excellent condition. About shipping: I do my best to keep shipping down, but can't control the rates at USPS. I will combine shipping if you win more than one of my auctions in a 7-day period. To be fair, should my estimates be over on postage itself by more than a dollar, I will refund the difference back into your paypal account. Shipping includes delivery confirmation; not insurance. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday shared with those you love.
