Ok, that is super super cool! Could you actually buy buttons, or were they just on display? That octopus button is my favorite!

LOVE all these buttons! At first, when I started reading, I thought you had bought all of these!!! HA!! That would be quite a haul!!! They are lovely, though. I've never heard of a button club, but it does look rather interesting. I clicked on the link and it's apparently a big event! Looks like fun!

A very interesting post. I once knew a lady who had an extensive button collection. I never knew how valuable some of them are.

Ooooh! I would have lost my mind seeing all those buttons. I do love looking at buttons. Those calicos are so sweet. Thank you so much for sharing.
