Throwback Thursday - Retro Canadian National Expo Button August 11 2016
It's Our Storefront's 1st Birthday! July 19 2016
We are celebrating the 1 Year Anniversary of opening the front part of our shop in the cheery pink building at 3095 Dundas St. West! It's been a great year full of fun new products, parties and events, and of course Make-A-Button!
Recently one of our awesome neighbours dropped off an article written by Claude McGilvray whose father, Watson McGilvray built the building that is now our happy home. He was a Tinsmith and started a tin shop in the basement and eventually opened a hardware store on the main floor.
Wait a second, Buttons are made of tin! We can't help but feel like we are carrying on a bit of a tradition!
This is Claude and his dad "Watt" McGilvray in front of their shop at 3095 Dundas West c. 1920:
