The Button Shop in Malvern.
A few years ago, I was searching for darning wool to mend Ken's socks. I finally found some in a haberdashery shop in Glenferrie Road, Malvern, but I didn't take a note of the address. I've looked for this shop a few times since then, but obviously didn't walk far enough, because I found it again the other day, and the saleslady said they've never moved from where they are now! I asked her if I could take some photos to post on my blog, because I know the readers based in Melbourne would love to know more about the shop once they knew what goodies were in stock, and she was happy for me to do so. Apart from L'ucellos and the Button shop in the Nicholas Building in the CBD, this is by far the best haberdashery shop I know of in Melbourne. Just take a look at these photos and see if you can compare it with anywhere else! Leaves Spotlight and Lincraft for dead!
The Button Shop, 181 Glenferrie Road, Malvern.
All those red draws along this wall hold buttons!
They also sell wool and related knitting and crochet products.
Ribbons, ric rac, braid, etc.
And needles of course, as well as anything else you want in the haby. line. I could get happily lost in this place for weeks!!
