A discovery in our neighborhood! We had heard about this shop in “New York’s Unique & Unexpected Places” but had not noticed it until this past weekend when almost we walked right by. It is right in our neighborhood! Like many NY gems, it is a tiny shop tucked away in an old brownstone townhouse in the midst of a residential section.
It is a long and narrow shop entirely devoted to buttons and ribbons. While some buttons are not extraordinary, many are virtual works of art in themselves. They are displayed on the outside of tiny drawers, and many are in old library card catalogue drawers or antique shop display cases. It is a charming place and one to return to for sure!
