Not So Lucky?

The search for four-leaf clover/shamrock 5/8" buttons continues! Here's the scorecard:

Bricks and Mortar Stores
Fabric Place
A Good Yarn
Woolcott & Co.
3/2/04, ETA: Circles (checked by Alison!)
A.C. Moore*
Pearl Art and Craft*

On-Line Stores
Sakonnet Purls * *

I haven't been totally unsuccessful in my search, though. I found a few shamrock buttons (here, here, here, here) but they are either too big or of unknown size. The pattern calls for 5/8", but will a slightly bigger button really make a big difference? I don't want the BBB to be difficult to button and un-button, but do one- or two-eights of an inch really matter?

*All of these button retailers were recommended in the comments of this entry by Knitsmiths founder and new blogger Dava, who cheerfully calls herself a button slut. If she can't help me, it's hopeless!

Did you try Windsor Button downtown? I've got to find some buttons for chickie and was trying to work out a scenario where I could get down there. I did check at Circles for you on Friday, but they didn't have any. :0(
