Button Boxes and Button Societies

Most homes still have some sort of button box, ranging from a simple jar to hold the buttons snipped from the inside of a purchased garment to the most elaborate of collections. The popularity of button collecting has grown over the years with the main advantage being that even the thriftiest collector can start with only a small monetary investment. Buttons can range in price from a few cents for a handful of plastic buttons to thousands of dollars for a prized antique specimen. The National Button Society or NBS was started in 1938 and offers collectors opportunities in education, competition and seminars. Whether you are a serious button collector or just a fascinated onlooker, incorporating buttons in your next project might be just the thing to get you hooked on buttons.
