I really hope that you’ve enjoyed this fun-loving work I’ve done on this blog this year and I look forward to more discoveries in 2013.
And speaking of buttons, have you heard about the latest way to fix a broken one that has popped off your shirt or jeans? It’s called the Tic Fastener.

Ah yes, the interesting world of the button industry!
