The goal of our Club is to provide opportunities to study buttons that are worth collecting, and share that knowledge as we come to appreciate their beauty and history. Collectable buttons include all buttons - antique and vintage, uniform and military.
Meetings are held at 8 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month (except January) in the Fellowship Room of the Burwood Heights Uniting Church (A-frame) on the corner of Burwood Highway and Blackburn Road, Burwood East. (Melways Ref. 61 K7)
The idea of a button collecting club was conceived in 1995. The Victorian Button Collectors Club became a reality in 1996 when, through word of mouth and personal contacts, we held our first meeting at a private home. As individual button collectors, we had been aware of established button clubs in America and the United Kingdom. In Melbourne at that time, there was very little public information about buttons available, button collecting was not a hobby most people had heard of, and it was difficult to find collectable buttons even in antique shops. The Victorian Button Collectors Club was established to encourage the collecting, preservation and appreciation of buttons, antique and modern, and research into the history relating to their origins and uses. Most of all, the club provides an opportunity to meet like-minded people. If you are a member you can - Find out more . . .
Next Meeting - CANCELLED
TUESDAY 14TH APRIL 2020
The Committee has decided it is in the best interest of our members if we cancel our April Button Club meeting due to the spread of the Coronavirus. We don't want our members to be at any risk and feel this is the best option for now.
As things evolve we will keep you up to date with any further cancellations that may happen. We hope you stay safe and well.
