From Buttons to an Office

14 December, 2012

In the late 50’s we were selling not only peanuts, but concession and vending equipment and supplies and vending machines and everything to go into them. Customers began to ask for bingo cages, cards and balls. Where my dad saw an opportunity to sell a new product, he researched it and soon we were selling it! With these new products, my dad and uncle realized they needed more office space for record keeping and they each needed their own desk. They leased the next building to the right and soon a hole was cut in the brick wall and the button shop that was there became our office space until the late 80’s.
