This button is one of the 1980s buttons used for retail and promotion in NYC. During the 1980s, retail places used to give away free buttons with every purchase. This button came from one of the retail stores, Unique. Also known as Unique-Boutique, the large retail store has multiple departments selling graffiti spray-painted clothing, vintage duds, and fashionable bright neon attire. Although Unique was effectively advertising during the 1980s, it went out of business in the early 1990s. Although the NYC retail trends have changed in the present, the trends back in the 1980s continue to bring memories.
