Oops wasn't me

We had an accident while loading the lorry in Metz – It wasn’t me!

We have 3 of these blue units, they contain our button displays.

What I mean to say is they contain our “LOOSE” buttons.

Tony and I take our time when loading the lorry.
Everything goes in, one by one.  It is all secured so will not shift while in transit.
We have a long way to go, and after Metz a ferry crossing.

You could say we are rather slow.
So some kind French soul decided to help by pushing one of the button units to the lorry.
They are very heavy, and need to be pushed in a certain way…………

Oh dear, have you  guessed what happened?
novelty buttons

Tony found a lady in floods of tears on her hands and knees with….
….thousands of buttons scattered across the floor.

While she was pushing the button unit, it had toppled over and she had lost control, and
it had fallen. It was smashed and totally broken.

Tony and I recovered the unit, lifted it back on to bogie and limped back to the lorry with it.
I was cool as cucumber – honest. 

    We have tried sorting the buttons, but to be honest there are just too many.  So………..

We have added Novelty Basics 2 Go buttons to the website.  Find them here .
They are assorted and we can not tell what you may find in your selection,
it will be a nice surprise!

Ooooh and what about another one of these.
