As a group we have all known each other for more decades than we care to think about.

Between us we have 7 children and several grandchildren. We are dog lovers though currently we only have 2 dogs between us. We all love to travel and so we can truthfully say we 'shop the world'.

We came together as a group in 2009 over lunch! Discussing various options a group of 6 retired and semi-retired ladies have to do something different, think outside the box, and so fab6 was 'born'. After several dips into various ventures we found ourselves with several boxes of vintage buttons. What to do? First of all we had no idea of the history of buttons much less the differences in various materials used to create them. We explored the fascinating history of buttons and its evolution through the centuries, the various materials used to create them and became hooked! Or should we say buttoned!?!? First we experimented with local venues and opportunities to display, sell and find new stock. It did not take long before we realized we needed to either open a store front or develop an on line store. After much discussion and research we agreed to open an Etsy store. By now we had also acquired some vintage jewelry and other items. This led to our shop name of ButtonsAndTreasures. Our store opened in 2011 and we have not looked back since!

We really love the experiences we are having, learning new skills and so much more! There seems to be new things to discover and learn all the time! We enjoy searching for special items to bring to the store. In addition to the items displayed we sell craft buttons in varying amounts, sizes, colours etc. depending on the requests.

Please take time to visit our store and see what a group of ladies in their 70s have been able to achieve!

Thank you.
