Knitting a scarf with yarn from Windsor Button in Boston, MA is a great way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day though out March!

After an online search for Boston yarn shops, I found Windsor Button within walking distance of our hotel. It opened in 1936 and sells sewing, craft, and knitting supplies. Entering the shop, I saw a wall of drawers that reminded me how buttons were sold before they were displayed on wall hooks and rotating racks.

I walked the long wall gazing in awe at the unique buttons attached to the fronts of the drawers. Because I’m a sewer, beautiful buttons are as fascinating to me as precious stones are to a jeweler! I’ve spent hours looking for the perfect buttons to complement my sewing projects.

Near the front of the store was a huge box filled with thousands of buttons. The sign read “Bulk Buttons 25 cents each or $5.00 per box. I wondered how long it would take to count all those buttons!

A unique shopper in a unique store!
