If the shoe fits. . .


I found the shop a couple of weeks ago. "Shoe repair and alterations" on Old River School Road. It was time to repair the items that have taken up space in my "to-be-repaired pile" in my closet. It seems like a lost endeavor to get shoes repaired in our of use-and-replace world.

The shop has a "hole-in-the-wall" feel. There's a big, heavy-duty sewing machine, spools of thread, and customers' bagged shoes lined up. But, what caught my attention were the hanging wooden shoe stretchers. They were so interesting, worn with use, like they have a history. What stories could they tell?
