What is a Button Club?

We are a club that meets monthly in the Kansas City Metro with the purpose
to study and preserve antique/vintage and studio clothing buttons.

Like so many collectibles, clothing buttons tell a timeline of...
History, Art, Theater, Wars, Politics, Manufacturing, Science and MORE.

Button Collecting is world-wide!  

If you are interested in button collecting and
want to visit a button club in your area, please email me privately.
 Or visit the National Button Society to find a club near you.

    1. Hello Alison! So nice to hear from you! I am not aware of a Button Club in Scotland. The closest would be these in England http://www.britishbuttonsociety.com/home-page and http://www.vicbuttonclub.com.au/
      Thanks for keeping track with me over the years!
      Happy New Year Blessings to you!
