Jet or Black Glass
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!
