I aim to sell all sorts of buttons (except mass produced modern imports or military buttons). I am a member of the British Button Society and am continually learning about buttons - so comments or questions are always welcome - contact me via the contact form in the menu.
Feedback to share with others, about any buttons you have purchased, is also welcome - please leave your comments on the Feedback page in the menu.
