Where Can You Find Old Buttons?
A side benefit of button collecting comes with being able to find them everywhere. From garage sales to flea markets and textile shows, buttons abound. Sometimes they are neatly organized, other times they are in a heap big enough to dig through for hours. That is part of the fun of collecting.
Often thrift stores will end up with vintage garments and uniforms holding great buttons. As a matter of integrity, many collectors feel it is best to pilfer buttons only from garments with little or no life left in them. A complete garment will offer more history than just the buttons alone, so keeping them together as long as possible makes sense from a preservation perspective.
It's nice, however, when you do find a worse for wear garment that offers a complete set of matched buttons. Sometimes this allows collectors to add one interesting button to their own collection and share others through trading or selling.
You can also visit button collecting shows and meet others interested in the hobby in the process of adding to your collection. These are usually put on by button collecting societies and clubs so they will feature some of the best and most interesting buttons available in the secondary marketplace.
