Button, Button, Who's Got the Button?

The Alpine Township (Kent County, Michigan) Historical Museum soon will. This human-interest story in the Grand Rapids Press about a nearly-90-year-old woman who is donating her entire button collection to her local museum caught my eye. We genealogists collect some unusual items, to be sure, marveling and wondering at the history behind them. If these buttons could talk, I'm sure they'd entertain us for years with their stories!
