So here is my lovely gift from Darnell's. An assortment of vintage buttons, ric rac and other trimmings and some patterns. I tell you I lovingly stroked those buttons before sorting them into colours! I also got some lovely fabric but it's dark now so the photos are no good son.
Here is Bill. His father, Bill Senior, started the store in 1932. This Bill started working there with his father and has now been there for 60 years. And here is the aladdin's cave of treasures within all the original shelving!
