Oh what a day Nancy & I had together at this years AZ State Button Society’s annual show. It’s always held at the Hilton Garden Inn in Avondale. This room might not look like much but for us, it’s heaven. 95% of the buttons are displayed on boards and you flip thru them like record albums. The show theme was “Buttons On Parade” and the competition boards were judged on Friday. I attended the Celluloid class in the morning. Some buttons are dumped on the tables or in small buckets. they are called “poke boxes”. We dig thru them for hiden treasures at bargain prices. We both noticed that “poke” prices were considerably higher then last years show. Celluloid button boas courtesy Patty Wild.
