Looking for a suitable topic for my new Pinterest page, I was struck by the variety and beauty of the buttons on so many of our garments.
We have a massive stock of quality costumes from all eras, from all over the world, and most of them have buttons of one sort or another.
From the military style brass buttons found on soldier costumes, police uniforms and military wear to satin covered buttons on period dresses, the more you look, the more you find.
There are unusual foreign buttons on traditional european costumes, whacky oversized buttons used on clown costumes, velvet buttons on victorian dresses and waistcooats, and not forgetting London's famous pearly buttons for pearly kings and queens.
Check out some beautiful buttons on our facebook page, picasa and on Pinterest.
