Buttons as Collectibles/Antique, Vintage, and New

a collection of buttons
When: Saturday, Feb 24, 2018 - 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM

Buttons are becoming more and more popular. We’ve seen them in decorations, jewelry, artwork, and, of course, clothing. This presentation will provide you with an overview of buttons through the years with examples, identification tips, and lots of pictures. We’ll also explore local button manufacturers and button finds. This will be a rare opportunity to view some of the buttons that have been unearthed at Peebles Island.

The presenter, Kathy Arbogast, has found collecting buttons to be a fascinating, educational, and beautiful hobby since she started over 10 years ago. She is involved in local, state, and regional button events and clubs.

Warning! This presentation may result in you becoming infected with button fever!
After the presentation, Kathy will be happy to look at any buttons that you bring.

FREE and open to the public.

Sponsored by the Friends of Peebles Island State Park
