Why is it impossible to buy BUTTONS on the UK high street?
Unbelievable, everyone must need buttons.
I just need 10 buttons ~ 14mm = 1.4cm ~= .75″ aka size 22. Navy prefered.
Tesco, 99p shop have sets of assorted buttons or pack of minute shirt buttons.
Such buttons won’t do my pair of duvet’s
Would be utterly useless for coat that kept one WARM in winter
Event John Lewis can’t do over internet
Local sewing shop went out of business!
Can’t compete with chains for big items like sewing machines, can’t live on buttons & bows alone
EBAY the only source!!! 10 large for £2.45 [I mis-guesstimated 1st time]. 10 right size £1.75
So niche market for buttons
So here is an example of a much needed commodity that the free market does NOT supply.
