Here are photos of the buttons I received from the Dick Blick one pound assortments: (click to view larger)
I recieved a good variety of colors and sizes, a few shaped buttons (hearts, flowers, squares, triangle, etc..). Most of the buttons are the flat variety and perfect for crafting! Several buttons have brand names imprinted on one side, but that actually doesn't bother me. The buttons ranged from 1/4" up to 1-1/2" in size.
Also, on the topic of buttons ... I have run across some beautiful "button tree" projects online:
Makin' Projiks - This beautiful button tree is made by pinning buttons to a styrofoam cone. You don't need to glue the buttons & can reuse them later for another project if you choose
Balzer Designs - Create a lovely piece of heirloom art with a framed button tree. Tutorial by Diane Payne.
