"Button, button, who's got the button?"
I have visions of sewing, of creating beautiful clothes from gorgeous fabrics. My visions include trips to New York to buy fabric and buttons - dozens and dozens of unique buttons. Buttons are gorgeous and fun! I could design a suit around a button.
I have not, however, designed that suit, or anything else, for over twenty years. It has been that long since I made Arabian horse costumes. There are many other amazing things I want to pursue so I don't carve out the time to sew. What I will find the time for is to change the buttons on an old jacket. New buttons, exquisite and elegant, will spice things up a bit.
It was time for a trip to The Parker Button Company on Pittsburgh's South Side.
Walk into the store and you are greated by a wall of buttons.
All of the buttons are color coordinated and are stacked in lovely boxes.
There are simple buttons
and high-style buttons.
Visit Parker Button Company and you leave feeling very creative!
