while we were looking for the soba shop,
we passed by this button shop.
boy, were we lost in the sea of buttons and lace!
most of buttons are very vintage looking
and when we look at the price of some of them,
surely they are vintage!
some were dated back from 1920s.... and they were pricey!
i ended up getting some lace and a few buttons...
hope i can learn how to knit for bbb and use these buttons.
not a bad detour at all!
i got lost while looking for this little area called nakazakicho 中崎町...
it is supposed to be a hip area filled with cafe, handicrafts, vintage stuff, etc....
just when i was about to give up,
i decided to walk the opposite direction to give it one last try.
glad i did!
it was getting quite late when i found it and some shops were closed already....
but at least i was able to hop into a couple of them....
including this one called attic days....
a cute little shop carrying handmade accessories and other goodies...
wandering these little streets is the best part of the trip *smile*
