It was buttons-at-first-sight when Lidia handed me a pre-pinned, silk-screened Evil Kitty tote-bag at Pitchfork. She uses buttons on her groovy business cards and describes how she uses them:
I’ve been giving out your [Busy Beaver] buttons at Pitchfork, Lolla and the Reading festival in the UK! I also had them at a Sidewalk sale at the Daley Plaza this summer. I also send them out with every on-line order. As you can tell, I’m out and I need to get more soon. For some reason I failed to obtain even one photo of me ambushing people in the crowd and forcing them to take my buttons (not really, most people loved them).
