Lansing Button Salesman's Promotional Card


I came across this 1958 Lansing Button promo card selling on eBay recently and it's just so lovely - with it's fabulous 1950s illustration on the cover and pretty buttons on the inside - you'll definitely be centre stage if you wear these little beauties! I wonder how modern day Button companies now market & sell their buttons - do they still produce cards like this? Has anyone seen any? How do they compare to this vintage beauty I wonder...?


Don't you love the description of this 'striking fancy' button?

Antique Raspberry Glass Swirlback Button

This gorgeous antique glass Swirlback Button sold on ebay recently - and sadly, I forgot to add a bid. I love the colour, shape and texture - it almost looks like a juicy raspberry, ripe for the picking!

Conscience is a man's compass...

I came across this beautiful button for sale on ebay recently, and as much as I would love to buy it, it's way outta my price range - so in the spirit of the quote - my 'conscience' won - in not buying something I can't afford or don't really 'need'...
