      I bought 4 sets of four of these Lois Calkin buttons about 15 years ago in London. I am not a button collector. I just loved them for the design as I am an artist. I don't know what I was going to do with them - but enjoy them - and I have! I'm getting ready to sell them on eBay Hopefully to a collector that will appreciate.
