The Sacramento Button Club is inviting the public to Button Bazaar 2013 on Saturday, March 2 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Carmichael Community Club House, 5750 Grant Ave. in Carmichael.

Button Bazaar is gaining popularity, as collectors are discovering the importance of these miniature antiques. Buttons well over 100 years old are still affordable and storage requirements are minimal. Most collectors display framed buttons, or create no-harm wearable art, while others simply enjoy the button “poke” box.

Collectible clothing buttons from the 18th century to contemporary times will be offered for sale, by dealers from around the country, eager to share their knowledge.

Studio artists will be exhibiting their latest creations for sale. When it comes to art and craftsmanship, these buttons are comparable to fine glassware, jewelry, metalwork, ceramics, enameling, woodworking, paintings, etc, and the collecting field is enormous.

Buttons may have started out as clothing fasteners, but in today’s world, we value them for their historical, artistic and decorative merits.

They have become their own “reason for being.” Early buttons were made by jewelers and artisans, and the Victorians wore them from the neck to the waist and from the elbow to the wrist. The button industry was huge in the 20th century, and it reflected the culture and fashion statements.

Although buttons are one of the most recycled items on the planet, it’s not easy to find these special treasures without attending button auctions or buying on the Internet.

Whether you’re into fashion, history, sewing, antiquing or crafting, you will be surprisingly captivated when you discover the fun of button collecting. You’ll find them in every material, pattern, and pictorial subject.

The Sacramento Button Club is a non-profit organization for the study and preservation of collectible clothing buttons. Entrance to the regional button show and parking is at the rear of the building and a $2 donation is appreciated.
