Free gift with purchase- buttonhooks: "What's in the Box?" Box 4-Object #2

Museum artifacts have many stories they can tell! You can explore what materials they are made of, how they were made, who made them, how they were used, or how they changed society – and so much more! Think of this video as the abridged history behind buttonhooks, where I explore just a few chapters of its story.


I challenge you to look at the objects around you and think about all the stories they have to tell!
