All about the buttons

It started small. A couple of unusual and pretty ones filched from Mom's button box. The it grew - I needed buttons for my handmade purses and knit wear. Then I found myself buying in bulk at wholesalers. Then lots of vintage buttons from ebay, which I sorted then sold off the spares.

Then an offer. 60 000 stock clearance. 60 000 became 70 000 when the lads got fed up with counting. Another offer: another 50 000.

And then ideas came. Handmade buttons. Handmade by other makers in techniques I don't have time or inclination to master.

And so was born.

Boutonnerie def: "the making and selling of buttons"

That'd be me then!
