Our club first began in January of 1939 as a small group of button collectors under the name Washington State Button Collectors. Several meetings were held over the next couple of years under this name. Then in March 1942, this group formalized a constitution and organized as the Washington State Button Society (reference: National Button Bulletin July 1948, page 245). We are celebrating our 80th year as a formal club in 2022. We are so proud of this club and our history. We hope future collectors will continue to carry on our proud tradition.
Thank you to Gloriosky for working to collect a complete set of WSBS Favor Buttons. Here is what we have so far. (Click on the photo to view a larger view of each page). Do you have any of our missing buttons? If so, or if you have more information on the buttons from the missing years, please contact Marge (email below). Enjoy!
