“While buttons may seem to most like a common adornment that graces our daily apparel, so many of them possess historical value, are crafted from exquisite materials, and have been a masterpiece created by some of the most talented artisans around.”

So wrote Michelle Daino, for the Home News Tribune and the Courier News, about the button show tomorrow (September 13)

The New Jersey State Button Society (NJSBS) will present the fall s annual show and competition on Saturday, Sept. 13, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Union Fire Co., 1396 River Road (Route 29), in Titusville.

Paula Gentile, a representative from the Blumenthal Lansing Co., a button manufacturer that dates back to 1877, will give a talk on “Modern Button Design: From Concept to Finished Product.” A dozen dealers from four states will offer buttons suitable for quilters, crafters, re-enactors, and those seeking special buttons to wear. A button raffle and award presentations are also planned.

Here is the story as published in the two Gannett papers:

Thanks to Daino for a good story.
