What a beautiful show; just beautiful. I don't collect buttons on purpose
but do seem to have a lots of them. Did you notice the vest the book author
was wearing?  Polly

That looks like a lot of fun, Roberta.  Who would have thought there
could be a show/sale just about buttons?!?  The vintage ones are
wonderful, as are the new ones.  I really liked the hand carved wooden
ones - such talent.  Oh, and I also loved the trees with the 'snakes
on them...  I've never been to a 'button show' but can tell I'd enjoy
it emensely.

Re: buttons
Thanks for the link.  I love and collect buttons - I have my grandma's,
mother and mother-in-laws button tins and I have collected quite a few over
the years.  My favourites are the beautiful glass buttons.
I also collect old wooden cotton reels, empty or not.

Re: buttons
DSisIL is a leading light in the British Button Society and has a
fantastic collection - mainly antique buttons.

There are some links there - perhaps there is a group near you?
