I had a wonderful time at the 2018 National Button Society Convention last week. My presentation, "The History of Buttons: Why We Collect the Little Works of Art," attracted almost three dozen people! Afterwards, I sold 10 copies of my presentation in the narrated format. This makes me really happy because it tells me that the buyers will use it as a recruitment tool or at their local meetings. I attended most of the educational presentations and was, once again, overwhelmed by the huge-ness of the vendor showroom and the competition trays display. Whew! But here are photos of most of the buttons I got at the convention. To see photos from the Convention, look on Facebook under Florida State Button Society or the National Button Society.
