The Bendigo Buttonfest yesterday was a wonderful day: Lots of  hard work paid off with laughter, learning, buying and selling. No doubt a few new collectors have caught the button collecting bug!

Here’s a few Australian buttons I found. I also have a lot of carded mother-of-pearl buttons (Thanks Pat!) that I’ll share soon.

 

Loose buttons (top) a Beutron Original, Australian Lighthouse Service (featured previously) a plain PJ King, and a South Australian School button.
British made Beutron ‘Wash buttons’, mid-late 1940s.
