Our purpose is to counter the anti-Muslim hate speech and growing incidence of violence and hostility in our country that have been rapidly accelerating since the November attacks in Paris and the December killings in San Bernardino, CA, and to act in support of our Muslim neighbors.

Buttons Past to Present is about sharing the beauty of old and antique buttons with everyone. It all started with a huge antique button collection of ours which got out of hand. What attracts us to buttons is that they beautifully reflect the cultural anthropology of our history and fashion. Buttons reflect the timeline of our lives. The buttons themselves are little works of art. Displaying them as Jewelry for you to enjoy is one way to get the beauty of the buttons out there to you.
A Bonded Freedom, by Gretchel Hathaway, is the story of a truly epic friendship between two men who, in different ways, were giants of courage and commitment. Moses Viney escaped the bonds of slavery and was embraced, literally and figuratively, by the long-serving president of Union College, Eliphalet Nott. As this fascinating account (more history than fiction) makes clear, both men supported one another through crisis, physical pain, and personal loss. Their “bonded friendship” continues to be celebrated in New York and particularly in the Union College community as an enduring example of how differences in race, social background, and professional status fade to the vanishing point in the presence of mutual trust, caring, and respect.
