Have talk, will travel. Current fave topic: the world’s smallest antique, buttons.
Carol Meszaros and I will talk about button collecting at the Lawrence Library on Thursday, May 8, at 7 p.m. Everybody will have a “hands-on experience” and get to take some buttons home.
Another chance to learn about, and acquire button treasures, is at the New Jersey State Button Society show and sale to be held this Saturday, May 10, 9 to 4. It is at the Union Fire Company on River Road in Titusville, admission $2.
Carol, on the left in this picture, is looking through the button jars of Nancy Briggs Moser and Alice Cruser, who attended a talk we gave at Kuser Farm Mansion last month.
For the Thursday talk, the headquarters branch of the Mercer County Library system is just off Business Route 1 on Darrah Lane. You can also get there from Princeton Pike.
If you have always wondered about your grandmother’s button jar, join us!
