Archives: Buttons and artifacts

In the (now empty and finished renting) two car garage with loft in Amityville, there were many political buttons. Some were from the days before PeaceSmiths, and they were shared with Susan’s family. Some were in sets to sell at the next yard sale or event. Many are very meaningful and memorable.

Above: This button was in the archives, safe and sealed in a plastic bag it appears it was packaged in. It has Asian (Japanese?) lettering on it, the words “Peace Wave”, and the date 1988.6.9-12

Button: No! Nuclear Weapons 2004

    Hope you come on Friday! It is great to see new and old PeaceSmithies!

    Some of those buttons are still around, hiding in our archives.

    One day, we will have to have a big, button sale. Perhaps a project…

    This is a nice collection! The Asian “peace wave” button is Japanese. At the top it says “Abolish Atomic Weapons!” The phrase below the colored rings mirrors the English below it, “Peace Wave.”

    I’ll have to find mine, from 1980-1981 maybe? I used to go to the original house all the time.
