the 100 best shops in London: Button Queen

A long-established retailer with a great reputation for knowledge and expertise, Button Queen is an emporium of antique and modern buttons of all shapes and sizes, from 19th-century picture buttons, 1920s antique art nouveau designs and art deco plastics, to Bimini glass buttons, enamels and oversized contemporary styles. Shelves are filled with boxes of different buttons, made from horn, silver, glass, jet and plastic. If you’ve lost an unusual or antique button, staff will try to source a replacement; a button-covering service is also offered, and the company can even arrange to have buttons dyed to match the colour of a fabric. For men, there are blazer buttons, dinner jacket buttons and plastic tailors’ buttons.

These people love what they do and it shows in the product and the service. They have endless patience, great ideas and a fantastic selection. They will help you find the right buttons. A change of buttons spruces up your favourite gear and these people will have just the thing for you.

Quirky shop and have used it a few times. However I bought black plastic buttons that run when my coat was dry cleaned. I went back and they denied any liability and said it was the dry cleaners fault, either too hot or the wrong chemicals. If the buttons were not dry cleaning proof then they should come with some information. Also I never received a receipt and wasn't too bothered as the cost for the buttons were five pounds  but I regret that as if the item ruined had been expensive then I wouldn't of had any proof of purchase.

The Button Queen is one of those rare joyous places - almost from another time - tucked away behind scaffolding on a lesser known street; this tuck shop bastion of all things buttons is a second generation treasure trove for anyone who wants to add a bit of flair to an old coat, make a new garment their own or just to have a browse at thousands of buttons, buttons, buttons.
