Henry Burner demonstrates how to make buttons

In 2013, when he was 10 years old, Henry had a hard time in school because he was dyslexic. [5]During one of his fourth grade classes, his class had a trading-post unit. In it, Burner and his classmates used beads to by goods made by each other. Most people brought baked goods or lemonade, while Burner brought crafted ornaments to the class. This resulted in Burner earning about half the beads in his class's fabricated economy. [5]

After being successful in the classroom, Henry worked with his family to design and craft buttons and turn the idea into a business.

He started selling his products at farmers markets, but he eventually moved his business to the online space in 2014.

[2]He now has his own website [6]and alternatively sells his products on Amazon.com. [7]

As of November 2017, Buttonsmith has made $2 million in profit.
