Without doubt, the brittle charm of the shop windows in Rathausplatz square does little to betray the extraordinary treasure trove hidden within. For over 250 years the Mayer family has ruled over an empire of handicraft tools, lace frill borders, and buttons – the latter being important for the business in far more than name.
Countless minutiously separated and sorted boxes contain a vast variety of buttons very probably unique far beyond theborders of Austria. Every wish comes true here, whether you’re looking for bed linen or clothing for children, for Tracht fashions or the latest trendy apparel, for items of elegance or decoration.
Despite the incredibly immense range of buttons, the friendly ladies in the shop always know where to find exactly the right buttons for the job. By the time the customer reaches the checkout desk there’s no denying the feeling of having travelled back in time.
