Goofies or Goofy Buttons.  Goofy buttons represent in miniature a hat, dog, horse, flower, person or any other real object one might name.  They date back to the 1930 – 1950s.  Many collectors are now fascinated by collecting in sets.  Obtaining the sets button by button is hard, unless you know what to look for.  Realistic sets (Goofies) were issued on small sell cards with the name of the set and some embellishment on the card. Shirley says, “I have spent many years finding sets of Goofy Buttons.  You can see them on the ‘display only cards’ in the Cabinets of Curiosities at Morpeth Antique Centre, NSW.  If you are lucky you will find a set or a card of mixed Goofies here to purchase. They are becoming more collectable, higher in price, and very hard to find”.  (See separate listing for booklet $6 about sets of goofies/novelty buttons).
