Haberdasher

In British English, a haberdasher is a business or person who sells small articles for sewing, dressmaking and knitting, such as buttons, ribbons, and zips; in the United States, the term refers instead to a retailer who sells men's clothing, including suits, shirts, and neckties. The sewing articles are called in British English; the corresponding term is in American English where haberdashery is the name for the shop itself though it's largely an archaicism now.

‘haberdashery’; ‘notions’;
