Buttonaholic

During my button fundraising adventures, I have met the wonderful Ruth Meier, a button expert and collector of some 60 years standing. She is always hugely generous with her knowledge and had helped me understand a bit more about the buttons I sell.

She has recently had a 6 month exhibition at the Dowse Museum in Lower Hutt (sadly it comes to an end at the end of this month). It was part of a larger exhibition called "All that Jazz" celebrating the artistic input of the jazz era. Here are photographs I took yesterday (without a flash, so they are quite dark). I came away inspired.
