    STORES WE LOVE, A WINKY&DUTCH FAVORITE

    WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE ABOUT TENDER BUTTONS

    TENDER BUTTONS IS 1 IDEA, SUPPORTING 1 NICHE, ON 4 FLOORS OF 1 STORE

    Winky&Dutch product categories also include buttons, so it's no surprise we have worked with Tender Buttons for years, but that's just one of many reasons we love this store.  They have been in business for 50 years, thats 50 years of serious dedication when you consider it is all buttons, all the time. Their expertise and passion for this niche business is unmatched. They are recognized annually by print & digital publications ranging from New York Magazine, Gothamist, to travel books dedicated to finding the most impressive & unique destinations to see/experience in New York City. No one serves their niche more diligently or passionately than Millicent Safro and her team at Tender Buttons.

    In the opinion of this blogger/writer, the most obvious reason to love this store, is the answer I received from the owner of Tender Buttons, Millicent Safro when I asked her how, after 50+ years in business did she continue moving forward with such apparent joy and enthusiasm. Without pause, she exclaimed, "Because every single day is a visual delight."   This is why we love Tender Buttons.

    THE WINKY&DUTCH #TBT LOOKS BACK AT WALL STREET circa SPRING 2000

    THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING IN 2000 BROUGHT THE FOLLOWING NEWS:

    • 4+ INCHES OF SNOW TO NEW YORKERS
    • TIME MAGAZINE DECLARED  DESIGN/FORM RULED OVER FUNCTION  
    • PEOPLE WEEKLY WAS PROUD TO REPORT THAT JULIA ROBERTS WAS IN CONTROL
    • LUCKILY REAL NEWS WAS BEING REPORTED:  WINKY&DUTCH CUFFLINKS MADE THE COVER ........
    • WE MADE THE COVER OF WALL STREET CREATIONS CATALOG SPRING COLLECTION ISSUE

    Self labeled as a 'Financial Insiders Catalog', it was chock full of everything the business executive or tycoon would need from Dollar Sign, Stop & Go sign or Buy & Sell cufflinks from Winky&Dutch to giant pocket knives and even bar carts in the shape of a vintage globe.  All of these goodies were in stock and waiting to be shipped out to their customers who called the 1-800 number to order.  We found it funny that they had computer keyboard cufflinks but no website listed to shop from....but hey it was 2000.
