Store History

  • Founded: 1964
  • Founded by: Diana Epstein
  • Headquarters: New York, New York

We stumbled upon this amazing establishment while walking around the UES in search of better buttons for a coat. The store functions as a well-organized library of gorgeous buttons for sale, all contained in small cardboard boxes and clearly marked with prices. There are also displays of fine museum-quality varieties covering the walls.

If you're one of those people who recognize that changing the buttons on an article of clothing, on a duvet cover or pillow, or the tufting on a sofa can have a massive impact on the overall look of the piece, then Tender Buttons is the best-imaginable place to find them. It is a Shangri-La for button lovers. A truly unique place.
