It's a Small Button World

My husband and I spent a week in Amsterdam earlier this month, and I spotted this while we were on a canal boat tour:



And closer up:


I'd heard of the Knopenwinkel --the Button Shop-- but wasn't able to squeeze in a visit, so seeing it from the canal was a nice surprise.  I know another Button Floozy wrote about the shop several years ago, but I'd like to assure everyone that it's still around and that it's in a lovely area of the city.

I posted the picture on the Facebook page for my book, The Button Collector.  I was happily surprised when Suzanne Goldsmith, a fellow author, sent me this picture of a button necklace her husband bought her at the very same shop:


Once again, I'm convinced that it's a small button world!

I would hardly be able to resist that little storefront!

What I like about the picture is that it captures so much of what Amsterdam is about--the bicycles out front, the boat in the canal, the elm trees, and the funky shops in these old buildings...
