Why is this man smiling? He's the Button King!
His name is Dalton Stevens and he lives in Bishopville, SC. His hobby has made him famous, appearing on tv with Johnny Carson, David Letterman, Bill Cosby, Reggis Feldman and others - also on tv in Japan. And all because he loves buttons. His story is that when having trouble sleeping at night, he started sewing buttons on his jeans, his shirt and his hat. He went on to cover a car, a casket, a piano, and many more objects. I have included a few pictures from his museum, and he is quite a character. Be sure to click on the pictures so you get a real good look.
