About UsI have been a button collector for over ten years, my passion was ignited by finding an Art Deco designed button in an antique store. Little did I realize that it would become an obsession, pushing me to buy any and every button that I saw for a while. I studied books about buttons, attended button collector's groups and just looked at them for a while before deciding that I was running out of room to keep all of the new acquisitions. I started selling buttons by accident. My husband and I love to go to garage sales. One day when we were out, he found a box of buttons, called me over and showed them to me. The buttons were colorful, but plain, clothes buttons that were in the original bags from the manufacturer. They were dated 1975. I told him I wasn't interested in plain buttons. I asked him "What I would do with them anyway?" He said the words that changed my life. "You could sell them online."
That was in 2007. I started selling on Etsy until two years ago when my daughter passed away suddenly. During the time I was selling there, I developed some very loyal customers, selling plain buttons in sets. I had over 3000 sales with 100% satisfaction. When I decided it was time to get back to what makes me happy, collecting and selling buttons, I decided to move here to Ruby Lane for two reasons: They only sell vintage items, and they sell high quality. I have both going on in my shop. I will only list high quality vintage and antique buttons as well as other vintage items I've picked up along the button hunting trail, such as jewelry.
My buttons cover all of the categories, including: Antique (pre-1916) and Vintage (Mostly from the 1930's), made of glass, metal, porcelain, bone, composition, plastic, bakelite and celluloid, etc.
