Button Collectors across New York State descended at the DoubleTree Inn in Binghamton, April 29 – May 1 for the New York State Button Show and Awards. The theme of the show was “Hello Spring”.
Events included button dealers from across the nation selling buttons, a display of buttons representing the show theme, a button auction, judging of the competitive button trays, a Junior button collectors workshop, a guest presentation by Gretchen Gauthier on the show theme, the Sunday morning member breakfast buffet and general meeting where competitive tray awards were announced, we elected Jen Read as our new Society Secretary, and the gift of a button representing the show theme was handed out.
After breakfast, the Showroom re-opened for a final time, and we held the raffle. Thanks to everyone who attended this fun show.
Below are photos from the showroom floor and the auction on Friday Night.
