Button Hunting at Easter

It is Easter, and I am on a button hunt. I do know that it is the not the kind of hunt you are supposed to be on during Easter, but not unusual for me though! Where do I go? My favorite button treasure trove is Perlehuset/The beading house in Grønnegate off Hedgehaugsveien in Oslo – here: perlehuset. It is a tiny shop but do not be fooled the selection is off another world and their warehouse is numerous times the size of the shop – yes, I do know because I have been there. You can read about my exploration of it here: thousands-of-tons-of-buttons-and-beads. Of course I have to check out their latest selection of beads as well while I am there – their latest offerings on Facebook has made me very curious indeed: semi precious stones on a string. No, not for knitting but for making jewelry. Do study their tempting window display below. God Påske is Norwegian for Happy Easter and that is what I wish you all!

    Personally, I enjoy this kind of Easter hunting more than the chocholate one 🙂 And also – I have to admint – I am a buttonholic… In such a degree that I at one point bought myself a button cover machine and a huge amount of uncovered buttons in all shapes and sizes. And I love it!

    Have a nice Easter Linda!!

    God Påske Linda. My daughter collects buttons…she was allowed to pick some to purchase each time she visited a yarn store with me. As you can imagine, she has a huge collection!

    • Thank you, Janie! God Påske! What a great idea – yes, I can imagine her collection is huge! My mum sewed and had a huge button box my brother and I loved playing with as children!

    Linda, I know how suitable buttons are important for the final look. There is a wholesale store in Tallinn where they sell yarns, buttons, needles etc, the best place to look for buttons. Sometimes I think that it would be easier to buy buttons and to design a knit based on them, not the other way round :).

    • A very good point, Anna! Oh, I would like to visit your wholesale store in Tallinn! I have considered the same, I have found several buttons I adore and should find the perfect yarn and project for them 😀 Thank you Anna!
