Mixed Metal Button


The Button Mercantile was established in 2010 as a showcase for our vintage buttons.   We are not only intending to show the buttons but will be selling them through this website.
We began our collection 30 years ago with my Grandmother's collection that I inherited.   We have added buttons for years since that time , mainly from auctions and garage sale finds.
We bought a collection of vintage Victorian era buttons that originated in the Drake Hardware Store of Elmer , Missouri. All  the buttons are generally categorized as to types from the
Civil War era , hard rubber , metal , celluloid, bakelite and glass with many sub-categories to each heading. 
 So if your into buttons , please stop awhile , take a look at our inventory, email us and let us work with you!
