button bags

I have this thing about buttons being the key to making an item look expensive, so I have a tendency to replace buttons on items from H & M, Gap and other chain stores. I bought some wooden buttons a little while ago from one of my favorite textile stores in London, the Cloth House. There are two locations on the same street in Soho…just around the corner from my old work. The shops have fabulous  wooden floors, great window displays and all the great quirky touches that make you want to spend the extra few pence to shop there rather  than a chain store. Case in point, this fabulous bag that my buttons were put into. I really had to pinch myself to realize that I hadn’t teleported back to an age long gone!
