Don’t be fooled by its modest exterior, the Cork Button Company has as many buttons as you may ever need. We’ve mentioned this shop before in our Where To Buy Yarn in Cork City post, but this time it is featured all on its own because yarn is just a tiny portion of what makes this place a local treasure.
- Some buttons have been here for eons so if a color isn’t exact on the outside sample, take a peek in the tube since fading occurs on the outside one.
- Ask for help if you need it.
- If you are looking to match a button to an existing piece of clothing, bring the item with you.
- They are open on Monday to Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (they stay open during lunch), but are closed on Sundays. (Hours updated March 2016)
The shop renovated and expanded its selection, which had been in a storeroom as well. It is a sight to behold and carries everything from affordable acrylic knitting yarn to quality quilting thread to BUTTONS. A view of the inside of Cork Button Company (4 Pope’s Quay, Cork City Centre) to show you they have more than just buttons on their shelves.
