Buttons Blossom

The button shop at Paddington is blossoming courtesy of the enthusiasm of the collectors out there and the number of people who can't walk past a small, but evocative piece of fashion history. We have an ever-changing display of antique, vintage, and selected contemporary  buttons for sale including an exclusive range of enamel buttons made in a small artisan studio in Italy. Many of these enamelled beauties are in art deco styles. Our clientele are a creative bunch looking for something to add a unique and original finish to a garment or design piece. Just today we had the lovely folk from Queensland Theatre Company purchase some gorgeous vintage glass buttons to finish the look on a fabulous sequinned jacket to be worn by Judy Garland ( played by Christen O'leary) in the upcoming production of End of the Rainbow.
