buttons

are you always losing buttons? do you find them in the rim of the washing machine door?  or do you find that buttons are just not secured so well these days and fall of so quickly.    i now put all my lost and found buttons in a simple glass jam jar and hang it in the bathroom.  you can buy a little pack of beautiful white assorted buttons from one of the stalls in Portobello Green Market under the westway.  On a Friday morning, there are 2 haberdasher type stalls selling vintage cotton reels and ribbons, one is in the covered part of the market and the other is on the street just in front of the Cloth Shop.

you can also  find a nice selection at  broadway market our patterned hand – a fabric and haberdashery shop, selling some vintage fabrics, patterns and buttons, and also at  whitstable fabric and haberdashery,  who has everything you need to repair and update any dress, trimmings, fabrics, buttons, its what every high street should have!

for a  big choice of buttons  the button queen on marylebone lane  has an amazing choice of antique and modern buttons.    they will even cover buttons to match your garment, taking the fabric from a hem or seam.  there used to be haberdashers in every high street, but increasingly they are disappearing;  it is good to know that there are still specialist shops with something as simple  and essential as a button.
