Kansas State Button Society
For us, we are not only collectors, we are Buttonologists- one who studies buttons!
We collect and study antique, military, modern, studio and vintage clothing buttons. We have found that most people think we are referring to political pin back buttons- nope- we are talking clothing buttons. However, we are also not talking the simple nylon shirt buttons of today! As collectors, we collect buttons to enjoy these incredible works of art and as with any collectible, to help preserve them and their history.
It has been said… “one that collects three or more of a similar item is a ‘collector’ of those items.”
Most people then are collectors.
