New to button collecting?
Or maybe you have been curious about the button jar your mom or grandmother kept. Please join me when I present "The History of Buttons: Why We Collect the Little Masterpieces of Art" on Thursday August 23 at 9 a.m. The program is designed for novices, but the history of buttons can surprise even long-time collectors!
