  2. Cork Button Factory

    Life in Cork City Ireland from an expat American's perspective

    Don’t be fooled by its modest exterior, the Cork Button Factory has as many buttons as you may ever need. From floor to ceiling, the main section of this Pope’s Quay shop is organized by color and style with buttons in plastic tubes with one sample affixed to the outer-facing end. If you ask, they also have thread, zippers, and other fastening supplies. Essentials such as Velcro, acrylic ‘wool’/yarn, crochet hooks, knitting needles, jeans’ buttons, dressmaker pins, and measuring tape are available by the counter or if you ask. Belt loops are in the mix with buttons. Rumor has it, the little-shop-that-could supplies to the city’s tailors and seamstresses. They are open on weekdays 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (they stay open during lunch), but are closed on weekends. This may be frustrating, but just remember that they work hard and need to take care of their own messages, errands, and lives come Saturday and Sunday. If you are looking to match a button to an existing piece of clothing, bring the item with you.
