By popular demand




I saw a bag similar to this one a few months ago being carried by a woman at Kings Cross Station in London. It really stood out, and I jotted down the Duttons For Buttons logo. When I looked it up on the internet, I discovered that Duttons is a much loved and enduring button shop in the North of England (the parent company was established in Leeds in 1906). One of the girls who works there had this great idea - to print a picture of buttons onto a re-usable hessian bag so that customers could then sew their own favourite buttons onto the bag. I just had to have one! What an imaginative way to display your button stash! I stitched on some buttons found at my favourite market, and had fun hunting down a few special ones from other places too. I've had SO many lovely comments from people about this bag. If you get one, you will find you make new friends wherever you go! The new IT bag! Just click here to to order your own.

I LOVED Duttons when we lived in harrogate! How wonderful to see them getting recognition for such a good idea! Lovely bag.

When I lived in York I always used to wonder if Mr Dutton always wanted to be something else but couldn't resist the rhyme.

If I recall correctly the shop is just up from the Jorvik Centre and the sign is painted directly on to the wall of an old building of the sort that make York the beautiful city it is.

I know! THIS BAG ROCKS and isn't expensive! I guess Dutton could have been a Glutton as well as loving Buttons - he could also have sold Mutton....hmmm...anyway I'm v glad he settled on Buttons!
