I attended the Missouri Button Club for the very first time and found some wonderful buttons to purchased after we looked at all the Winners of Buttons entered in the contest.
There was buttons there I had never dreamed would be up in the hundreds of dollars.Of course the ones that caught my interest were $495-$795 can you believe that?? Now these buttons were portrait buttons of pass Queen and royalty
These knot buttons for lack of their proper names is some I purchased
Each Dealer had large amounts of buttons on cards to sell then each had a button poke box on their tables where you could dig through and find a special button. The dealer I purchased all of these from had just removed them from display cards and added to their Poke boxes where you poke through. It was very fun
This is a Victorian perfume button where Victorian ladies would dab perfume to the velvet of the button and pin it on her clothing to help with the smells of the streets before sanitation in city streets.
Even if you're not into buttons I hope you thought this was interesting . Which was your favorite button?
