National Button Day!
Do you remember your grandmother or your mother snipping the buttons off shirts that were headed for the rag basket and then collecting them in jars? Possibly there were a couple of jars filled with different sizes and colors of buttons on her shelf that maybe you were lucky enough to be able to play with. The buttons were fun to stack into piles, sort by color or size, or scatter/slide across the floor or table making up different games each time!
Did you know?
Founded in 1938, the National Button Society recognized button collecting as an organized hobby. This is a celebration day for all button collectors, skilled and novice.
