I am piggybacking Autena's recent post regarding
The Pearl Button Capital of the World.
My friend Tara and I had the pleasure and opportunity in our research of pearl button manufacturing to privately meet with the Pearl Button Museum.
Please click here for my blog article.
If you enjoy pearl buttons and the history of them, may I suggest reading Shell Games by Jeffrey S. Copeland. I am not sure if The Pearl Button Museum carries this book in their gift shop; however, it is carried on Amazon.com.
The Muscatine Journal's review of Shell Games can be found here.
Thanks Autena for sharing your recent post and interest in
The Pearl Button Capital of the World!
Your post sparked me to recall how much I enjoyed my museum research visit and the book Shell Games.
