About

I am based in London England and am constantly amazed at the wonderful things people make and sell on Etsy.

I just love old buttons, and sometimes manage to find original buttons still on their cards. I also enjoy sorting and arranging the masses of odds and singles or part sets..

To source old buttons, I do go to lots of auctions, antique fairs and and boot fairs, in and around London. In my travels I come across lots of other interesting vintage stuff. So I have recently added a vintage section to my button shop on Etsy. Items for sale will be mostly sewing related but not exclusively so ... watch this space!

Recycling vintage buttons also remains my "drop in the ocean" towards saving the earth's resources. Packaging may also use recycled materials.
