So I'm no longer able to edit the original post so I'll start posting new items here along with changed quantities. Edit #3: Please check back often because although I may not add new items, I may change the quantities around because I get shipments almost every day and I will try to reorder things that sold well. Even though I may say "can not reorder," it is usually my best guess. But scouring the internet, I may be able to find someone who may supply it. I'll simply number them and you will PM me with what numbers you want. All of it goes to help pay for optometry school. I accept paypal. Shipping to outside the US is only $1 more for entire order.

These use a method of twisting a pin into the shanks that I invented and patented myself (actually, no I didn't). Price: $20 per pair. 2 pairs remaining. Design #31: Felt Flower Boutonniere 6-pack or 3-pack. For your lapel. And to identify yourself as an iGent. Diameter and Material: 1.5 inches. 100% wool felt and cotton button in the middle. Secured in the back with MOP button. You will get these 3 or 6 felt petal colors with these 3 or 6 buttons in this combination unless otherwise requested. You may request to have the colors switched; however, you must get one of each petal color and one of each middle color shown here. The colors are red, medium gray, dark gray, pink, black, and blue for petals. For middle button, it is yellow, red, blue, pink, light blue, and orange. Have fun with this. Price: $45 per set of 6.
