Buttons

Cultura is a store here that has a little bit of everything.  It is a mix of Barnes & Noble, Hobby Lobby, Best Buy, Toys “R” Us and a music store all in one.  I was looking for something specific the other day, and as I was walking around looking at everything I came across this display of buttons.  I smiled and took some pictures.  In America, whenever I have needed buttons for sewing or crafts I always ended up buying a card with 2,3,4 or more buttons attached.  Over the years, I came across a few specialty stores that sold individual buttons.  But, for the most part, I end up buying more than what I need.  I have a button box back in storage that is all the “extra” buttons that I never used.  So, when I saw this display I was happy.  They were grouped according to color and texture and stored in plastic tubes.  It was fun and different than anything I have seen in America.

  1. I have come across shops over the years that sell individual buttons – they have all been yarn/needlecraft shops. The Needle Point Joint on 25th Street in Ogden sells individual buttons. Some are in tubes and others are in little drawers. They are mainly what I call specialty buttons. They can get quite expensive!! I wonder how many people have button boxes. I have one that has buttons in it from Grandmama’s days of sewing.

  2. You might enjoy this tiny video on You Tube. It is only 1 minute and 49 seconds in length. Go to YouTube and type in: French General Collection from Jolee’s Boutique. When you hit enter, it will be the third entry that comes in.
    Ahhhh! Buttons!

    Sure love reading about your journeys!
