From a visitor in Connecticut:

They don't have a web site yet but Davidson's Fabrics in Bridgeport Connecticut has one of the largest selections of buttons in the state.   In fact, Martha Stewart, although she didn't  mention the store by name, talked about the store as a great place to get ribbons when she was on the OPRAH show.  Their phone number is (203) 333-4127.  Unbelievable selection of patterns, fabrics, bridal supplies and buttons.
