Last Sunday was the Vintage Expo here in Santa Monica. I went to the expo for one reason and one reason only- to see Linda Sicard – The Button Lady. I spent about five hours with Linda carefully picking and choosing buttons for both me and the shop. I need more buttons like I need a hole in the head… but how could I resist?! Here are a few photos of Linda’s booth… see what I mean when I say I can’t resist?
All the buttons Linda sells are at least as old as vintage, some are even antique! She has everything from plastic, to wood, to Victorian Glass, to Bakelite & Celluliod and much much more. So after about five-ish hours I actually left with a pretty good selection of buttons. Here is what I took home:
Linda will be attending a few more shows in California. If you happen to be up in San Mateo, Ca this week make sure to stop by the California State Button Show and visit the Unbuttons! booth- Say “Hi” to Linda!
