A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about a Book It button being on eBay for just $1 but I didn’t bid on it mainly because it wasn’t the exact one that I remember seeing when I was younger.
By sheer coincidence (or maybe fate), I happened upon the exact button that I had in mind while I was at Duke’s Lexington Antiques Center in Virginia yesterday. It was buried under a whole mess of other buttons going for only $1 so I snatched it up and now it is in my posession. It’s in great condition (meaning, no rust) and the pin on the back is still intact and sharp enough to attach onto bags and clothing. But the most wonderful part is tilting the button from your view and watching as the rainbow in the background moves ever so slightly back and forth. Ahh, memories!
