September 10: DJJD Vintage Button Sale

Buttons have been sold to promote DJJD activities since the Fall Festival began in 1946. NHS has collected these buttons over the years and has a wonderful collection to display each DJJD. Over the years we have taken in nearly all of the buttons people have offered us resulting in an absurd number of duplicate buttons in our collection. In keeping with our current collection goals, we have paired the collection down to a couple of buttons for each year. The rest are being offered to the public at a sale, the proceeds of which will go to enhance the collection. The sale is from 10am – 12am.


2000 – 2019         $5.00 each

1990 – 1999         $8.00 each

1980 – 1989         $15.00 each

1975 – 1979         $20.00 each

1976                      $100.00 each

1960 – 1974         $50.00 each

1946 – 1959         $200.00 each

** New This Year **   

Vintage Button Grab Bag – Buy a bag of three buttons for $10 and take your chance that you get a button worth A LOT more!!
