Button collection - 1" pins

Button collection. I guess I have a lot. Like a t-shirt a lot of them tell a story of some sort. Where they came from, bands, clothing brands, events, and so on. I can't say I've kept every button I ever received, but I do have most of them. Some are affixed to a backpack or hoody, so they're not here. There are nice books about buttons as well. It's just another collectible that's been put into hardcover.

Jawbreaker, Eastern Youth, Melt Banana, Sleater Kinney, Asobi Seksu, and more. Damn the Past! is a reference to a film that showed at the SFIAAFF.

Tokidoki, Devil Robots, Rodney Greenblat, Super 7... 326, Murakami, Groovisions, Chiho, Nara, and to the right, the great times of Justin Lin's Better Luck Tomorrow, when everyone was trying to get one of each person. If you put the last and this photo together, I'm proud to say, I have them all.

Nice Collection! I totally want to start making buttons, but i have to say the button machine can cost a arm and a leg. I'll have to wait till I get my tax return to consider buying one.

B-Yeah, i know it's elaborate and not cheap, but imagine how fun it is to make your own button whenever you want! And some for your friends! They do have kits, so it's not that tough... R-show me your buttons! S-aw thanks. It's almost by accident. When I was cleaning, I put them in one place. E-I'll look like an olympic pin collector!

Nice buttons! I bought my Nara & Murakami at GR2 last year. I dig the Jawbreaker and Groovisions ones you got.
