Prices are in British Pounds Sterling and you may order online or order by mail.

Stock Codes

The first 6 figures of each line is our Stock Serial Number - use this when ordering. Where applicable, the code in brackets before the price is a reference to standard button reference books.

Postal Costs

There is a minimum charge of £1.50 postage and packing for all orders. If Royal Mail costs exceed this amount, then the charge will be higher. Please see our How to Order page.

Read before ordering

We are not tailors or outfitters: our buttons are sold for collectors and whilst we may have some in large quantities, many are held as single items.  Even the same size and type of button can vary due to age or manufacturing variations.  This could be important if you require matching buttons for evening dress or a blazer.  If you specifically want matching buttons "all or nothing", please make this clear on your order form.

Prices are in British Pounds Sterling and you may order online or order by mail.

More about Yacht Club Buttons
