|Black Glass Button with Luster|
Many years ago, I was into collecting buttons so much that I'd collect any type. I was a member of the National Button Society and still own all my bulletins! I can't part with them, they are a wealth of information!
I had decided to cut back on my collections and the buttons went to other homes. Well, I couldn't stay away too long. I started collecting again but now I'm more selective.
When trying to decide what to write about in this post, it became very apparent I could go on forever and take up pages of this blog. In order to cut back, I'm going to show some links and at the end of this post, you can open a slide show to see just a few buttons from my collection. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!
Flea markets, antique shops and online are all great places to look for buttons. I still sit for hours and scour eBay for Bakelite, realistics (aka goofies), buffed celluloids and glass buttons.
And now, some useful links:Button Identification and Cleaning
