Tne Nicholson Building Is GOOD!

I used to buy (wholesale) jewellery on the 6th floor, at Accent... but I didn't know until now that it's one of the funnest buildings in Melbourne! Thankyou Janet, mysterious knitting friend on the train.
Corner of Swanston and Flinders Lane, then into the arcade and up the lifts. And the lifts are another story.. (gotta go).
Buttonmania. On the second floor, get out of the lift and turn right then right (immediately).The lady there spent at least 20 minutes saying, "Hang on, let's have a look at this..." until we narrowed it down to the best choice. So nice and interested and lovely and terribly, terribly helpful. And the lady does covered buttons and belts, so I'll be back.
And next door to this marvel of shops...
stay tuned, I have to find out it's name... IT'S MARCHE ROUGE...

Thanks for the credit! Kate at buttonmania is SO helpful. She has some swatches of mine for about 4 months finding the perfect buttons for me.

I love that section of the Nicholas Building.
I discovered Kate at Buttonmania about 2 years ago when we were visiting Melbourne --what a lady.
Nothing is to much trouble for her to solve your problems.
Her shop is my first port of call whenever I am down from Canberra.
And l'uccello is a wonderful place as well--also Kimono House that sells Japanese fabrics etc which is on the same floor.
I can't wait to get down there again.
