Please tell me where you purchase unusual and artsy buttons for cardigans. I do not see many when I do searches. I always find some at Jo Ann's, but there should be other sources for intriguing designs. Thanks for your help.

You're right. I usually go to JoAnn's but I've also had some luck at Hobby Lobby.

While you wait for specific replies, you might do a search on "buttons" in the Search at the top of this page.
There have been a number of discussions about this.
Many people find good ones on ebay.

I buy my buttons online - usually from China. There is sometimes a bit of a wait but I have never been disappointed with the buttons. Some of them are really beautiful and buttons are really expensive here in Australia.

Walmart is surprisingly full of beautiful and creative buttons. Kids buttons there are amazing.

I look at thrift shops at jackets, sweaters etc. I spent $3.00 for a jacket that had eight buttons on it that was perfect for a cardigan I knitted.

I think you are asking for artsy one of a kind buttons. Try Etsy. Some antique stores have buttons that are interesting.

Another place to try...when the fiber shows are going on in the warmer months, I have seen vendors who have made their own buttons. Anything from wood, stone and ceramics. I have found several adorable buttons that way.

You made a great suggestion. I’m going to Vogue Live N.Y.C. this weekend. You can get lots of button their. But even better the fiber festival in Rhinebeck. I like unusual buttons, they can cost more then the sweater.

I was in a thrift shop and every garment in the large room had the buttons removed. I guess they can get more for the buttons than for the entire garment.

I watch for cool buttons when I go to rummage sales. I have no problem paying a dollar or two for something to cut the buttons off. Also estate sales, it's amazing how many people have a button jar, and you can usually get the whole jar for next to nothing, and they have vintage in them a lot of times.
