Button Button is Canada's only all button store and not until I went in with my button-missing old raincoat did I realize the buttons really can make the outfit.  Button Button doesn't do on line orders but it's worth the browse and if you're going to try to match or replace buttons for a garment, bring it with you and owner Colleen Miller's wizard eye will help transform your garment.

You can also pick up a pound of buttons for 4-dollars in case you want to start your own button jar at home.
