What kind of button are you?
A natural wood or shell, or perhaps a bit horny?
Are you a vintage gem, or a modern masterpiece? Do you like to dress up, or dress down - blend in, or stand out?
We invite you for an afternoon of button story telling, to explore and find yourself amongst our extravagant collection. All stories and button images will be collated for a future book, showcasing our button loving community and capturing the diversity of our eclectic customers.
All stories will be anonymous.
All ages event! Mobility accessible. Racism not welcome.
Everyone welcome...what kind of button are you?
For those of you who are much further away from our Newtown premises, join in the fun from afar!
Think about the buttons (why limit it to just the one - we all have many facets to our lives) that best describe you and write a few notes about why. We'll search our shelves using your criteria and find your match.
To get you started, think about the traits of a button that you most admire.
Do you share the same traits? Or do you wish you did? What colour would you be?
In 2009, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of All Buttons Great and Small we asked our staff the same questions. There were some interesting, and hilarious, responses that we'll share below.
All Buttons Great and Small has made the difficult decision to close our doors during this time of high risk. Our staff and our customers are our main concern, and as ours is such a “touchy feely” business, we have made this tough decision with everyone in mind.
We are operating a skeleton staff with reduced hours, but we are still here for you!

In case you don't have any crafting projects underway, or the want to start any, keep yourself busy by doing things around the house.
On this glorious Autumn day, a reminder that you look great today, and every day. With some cooler weather around the corner, it's time to get your craft on and curl up on the couch with some quick projects - we've made a few here (out of paper) just to give you some ideas. Sew, knit, felt; whatever you feel like. Once the creativity starts rolling, ideas are endless.
There is one world and we are living on it.
When travelling this world, we take the time to appreciate the differences, try new things, speak new languages, meet new people, and at the same time bring back a little of what we find for you to enjoy.
In this display, we explore the globe with our stylish miniature friends as they seek out and discuss the bling factor.
Featured: Paperweight-style glass, diamanté, and enamelled buttons.
