Why Would Anyone Collect Buttons?

Button collectors take simple, utilitarian objects taken for granted by millions of people each day and group them into delightful displays that make you stop and think.


When eyeing a display of old buttons, you might ponder the type of garment that originally held a 100-year-old painted porcelain example. You might even go one step further and wonder about what type of person wore the garment when it was new.


Other times a button collection might bring back childhood memories. Some folks put together extra special groupings of buttons from scouting uniforms or children's clothing. Whimsical shapes like bunnies, puppies, and apples stir fond recollections as well.


Some buttons, such as those from the uniforms of military, police officers, and other civil servants, remind us how much those individuals have impacted so many lives over the decades.


These are revered collectibles. 


Then there are those who have a penchant for textiles or sewing, and buttons serve as a natural extension of those interests. And collectors of Bakelite, painted porcelain, and Jasperware find buttons made of these materials go right along with their other interesting displays of collectibles.
