No luck in Yackandandah, alas, but I did see this interesting photo at the Beechworth Gold gallery and shop:

Richard Finch sure made sure you knew where his tailor’s store was: 2 signs on the verandah edge, one on the street post, and one painted on the wall above the verandah. See the tailor’s page http://www.ausbuttonhistory.com/?page_id=10006

 

Don has spotted these:

See http://www.ausbuttonhistory.com/?page_id=7510 for buttons that adorned the woollen and woollen blend underwear made by the Australian Knitting Mills in Richmond. These must have been for store display.
