Tender Buttons/NYC

On a recent trip to New York I visited a wonderful, abet expensive, button store at 143 East 62 St. It has a lovely, library type atmosphere and really attracts some serious button collectors. They have a huge selection of new but interesting ones as well as rare buttons that are framed and mounted on the walls. I spent a good hour in there while my hubby patiently strolled around the neighborhood waiting for me! I did spend more than I planned of course and more than I expected... they add up! It was a cool experience but ultimately give me a good flea market any day where I have to discover my own treasures and the prices are on my side...

tender buttons- BETTY. the button seller was rude arrogant & militaristic: 'i told you you must make an appt on the phone' + not come in to make an appt! (re lovely antique pieces in my possession)-

charming? polite? RESPECTFUL twds a client? NOT

lady you are a button seller you are not a doctor helping others- a sceientisy w/ a cure for aids..

this beligerent snob NASTY MANNERS appeal has NO rm anywhere- Imagine their MARK UP + RENT for space is so pricey they think a little of exclusive attidue will appeal to some- not to this native new yorker b. ues- 'golden rule' please!

pathetic place- i tore up their biz card- walked out NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL dept of consumer affairs + 311 is being notified

pd i hold a ma from columbia univ- Bewtty w/ her thick accent mispronouncing most of the evil words purring fr her lips- asked if i needed the spelling of miss slocum? (the alleged owner)

well intended + proper= this is AN ABUSIVE TOXIC STORE
