Item details

These endlessly darling tiny SIZE 12 "Lady Fashion" "ABC Baby Button" CARDS from the 1930's showcase the most amazing and enchanting LITHOGRAPHED graphics!

A little baby sits, playing with a duck. The buttons (9 per card) sit on a blue background with a PINK ribbon running around it and tied at one side!!!

The color in the graphics is phenomenal: still fresh and bright and charming.

The buttons were apparently packaged with a strip of tape to hold them in place, so the tape has acquired a bit of darkness over time, but that most certainly speaks to the fact they are genuine antiques and makes them more engaging. Some of the buttons may, perhaps, be yellowed a bit under the tape, it is hard to know, but they are still enchanting.

All the cards have NINE fabulous original BABY BUTTONS (or DOLL BUTTONS) on them and terrific graphics, and all cards are endlessly enchanting and adorable!

Each card measures 2 1/2" across and 3 3/8" in length.

These beauties are new old stock and never, ever, ever used.

Should you wish to punch a hole in the top of the tag, you can make it into a fabulous gift tag. Great for baby showers, etc. Super to attach to any kind of gift for any kind of occasion!

Originally made in the 1930's, this is the first time I've run into this kind of button card (I am obsessed with button cards!) - and these are so so so so adorable.

I find these belles indispensable. I tie them to gifts and notes and floral arrangements, or just to one rose that I'm giving as a "thank you."

When I bake cookies or cupcakes for friends, these fab retro babes get attached to the platters.

I back one with a long piece of lovely vintage ribbon and use it as a bookmark. They are great for enclosures and a fun way to label boxes of supplies: just pop these adorable puppies on the front and write the supply name on the back! I've also attached stunning hat pins (stick pins, trinket pins) through the strong cardboard to add a certain "zing" to any gift.

Super for any event: showers, name tags, place cards, centerpieces: you name it: uses as endless as your imagination.

These cards are in great NOS vintage condition with NO ripped or torn cards. And, the buttons are gloriously beautiful!

Average review
I am with OP Vintia. The write up description was very poorly done. I too was expecting several button cards and only rcvd. one. The one that did arrive is darling, but the rest of the transaction was a bummer.

Seller needs to clearly state that the price is for ONE button card.

*I ship ONLY to the United States, Canada, France, the U.K. and Australia. NO shipments to Russia, Italy, The Middle East, Spain, Argentina, China, South America, Japan, Korea, Viet Nam or the Netherlands, so please do not ask.

I do not ship to intermediaries, which includes shipping companies, friends, relatives, etc. so they can ship items along TO countries other than specified. If I am tricked into shipping to an intermediary, or this information is not revealed, I claim and hold NO RESPONSIBILITY for ANY PACKAGE once it is posted from my shop. If it gets lost or stolen in shipment, I am not responsible and you will NOT be reimbursed. If you do not like it and want to return it, I will NOT provide a refund. There will, in fact, be NO REFUNDS in these instances or any instances relating TO using an intermediary of any kind to receive a shipment from me.


Your treasures will be beautifully wrapped, carefully packaged and shipped as quickly as possible.


You may see what appears to be a broad difference in pricing on some vintage items. These prices are not arrived at by serendipity. Individual item prices are based on age, rarity, artistry, size and condition. Feel free to convo me anytime if you wish to discuss this.


Please be aware that shipping costs WILL vary. They are calculated by weight. Some tin items, for example, are heavier than others. Glass is always heavier: some of it heavier than other pieces. Tablecloths are also generally quite heavy. I weigh everything before I list it and calculate a shipping cost from the weight alone.

If there is a discrepancy of over $1.00 in what you paid for shipping, I will refund the money to your PayPal account immediately.

I will generally notify you when you buy something, and give you a general idea of when I will be shipping your item (usually the next day). If you have any problems, please notify me so I can swiftly address them. Thank you!

I provide shipping notifications that include a tracking number to every customer directly after I ship an item.


If you wish an item insured, please contact me and I will find out what insurance costs and ask you to pay for it.


I am absolutely intent on providing my customer's feedback that is as positive as humanly possible, and providing it quickly. I'd appreciate it greatly, if you are pleased with your purchase, that you leave me positive feedback as well. If you have a PROBLEM with a purchase, a conversation or...anything...I ask you to contact me FIRST before resorting to leaving negative feedback. If you do not contact me first for reasonable conversation, I will not sell to you again.

If giving people negative feedback is how you get your jollies, please do not buy anything from me: I don't need the headaches.

I retain the right to refuse service to anyone who is extremely unpleasant, bullying, foot-stompingly demanding or flat-out insane. IF someone of that ilk still buys something at my shop without heeding my note to them that I will not in future sell to them, I retain the right to CANCEL the transaction. I will then refund your money. If you CONTINUE doing this for either spite or fun, I will STILL cancel the transaction and return your money.

Eventually, even you will get tired.

Returns & exchanges

If you are unhappy with your item, please contact me to discuss, and in almost all cases, I will ask you to return it and issue a full refund for the original item. If your request is unreasonable, I will not issue a refund, however "buyer's remorse" is not a good reason for a refund.

I am very very flexible: I want my customers to be happy.

Additional policies

Please feel free to ask me to HOLD an item for you if you know when it is you are going to be able to purchase it - a time not to exceed one week. Always happy to accommodate. If I do not hear from you and have been holding your item for a week and have not heard from you, it will be taken off reserve.
