These 2 Patti LaBelle pin back buttons are from the early 1980s. They are in excellent condition with no scratches, scrapes, bends or dents.
One pin is Patti LaBelle, the other is Patti LaBelle and Jay Leno.
I recently purchased a couple dozen various pins advertising many different celebrities that performed at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas from a lady who worked the concert room at Caesar’s Palace. She said she worked there for about 5 years in the late 1970s to early 1980s. She said that the employees who worked the concert room such as ushers, cocktail waitresses, etc all had to wear the button of the entertainer who would be appearing. She said she wore each pin four or five times and once the entertainer finished their engagement, she would wrap the pins in tissue and saved them in a box. She wanted to save them for her daughter, but the daughter has no interest in these “old performers”. (The daughter obviously doesn’t know great music when she hears it).
I will be listing all the pins as time allows so if you have a favorite performer be sure to check back often.
Buyer to pay $5.50 USPS First Class Mail Parcel postage charges. Shipping is from Aeizona.
SPECIAL NOTE about SHIPPING CHARGES: Twice yearly and again in November for the holiday season (so 3 times each year) the postal service increases shipping charges. This is what they call their “Delivering for America” plan in which they hope to become profitable. It’s a 10 year plan that started in 2021, so we’ve got years to go with multiple price increases each year. I try to absorb some of the new charges and haven't increased my shipping charges in three years. This year, unfortunately, I have to increase the shipping. I'll try to keep it reasonable and even absorb some of the changes when possible.
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can fit safely into a single box or envelope. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES: Sorry, I do not ship to locations outside of the United States.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
