Not too long ago I was talking about Button Button, a cool button shop in Vancouver where I picked up some great steampunk buttons and some cool gothic buttons as well. I thought that I would share with you some additional photos I took from inside the shop – in particular trays of the goth and steampunk buttons they have – including those I purchased… and others I left behind.
I have to admit, I was really tempted by those white and grey skull shaped buttons, but thought they might be a bit to kitchy for anything I’d sew. I also LOVE the black widow spider buttons – but yellow is a bit too bright for my taste. If those babies had been on grey I would have been sold! There were also some adorable plastic skulls with little bows in bright colours, and plain plastic skulls too – so cute!
Here are just some of the steampunk gear buttons, they also have some awesome wooden gears that I was really tempted by (hmm I should have gotten them!) and I also was really tempted by the little female ‘busts’ to at the top left hand corner – but again, I couldn’t really think of what I would use them for. In this area Button Button also has some totally cute anime-inspired buttons, and the cartoony buttons at the bottom left of this photo. The lone button in the middle right of this photo actually is a two-part rotating cog… how cool is that?
Wwhat you would have done with some of the buttons I didn’t get? Would you have found a home for those spiders on yellow? Let me know in the comments below!
