I love buttons. Im not making light of that. Most people who know me know I LOVE vintage buttons. Its an obsession. I have them in all materials, colors, and shapes. I do prefer buttons on cards, as they are easier to date. Most of my collection is on cards. Here are the ones (about a 5th of my collection) I have on NVL. There are about 30 pages of buttons.
Here are some I have shadow boxed.
My 20s box. There are some 30s cards in there too.
I have a strange obsession with Pilchers buttons. Ive followed their emergence in the 1910s to their mass marketing and multiple buy up through the 50s.
These are my 40s buttons. Ive also got some novelty buttons in there.
Here are some acquisitions, in no particular order.
I have a modest collection of men smoking on button cards. Cigarettes, pipes, etc. I have eight different cards now, and always on the look out for more!
