Today I'm joining Debra at Common Ground for Vintage Christmas Friday....she has an amazing group of ladies who are displaying some amazing Christmas ideas....pop on over to see them...her button is on my side bar.
The above vintage shoe form was found in a funky little shop in Montana.....Called Red Neck Chic....
It appears to be and old boot form size 8 1/2.....WITH THE CLIENTS NAME ON IT of Russell.....
It also was labeled with a file number so the boot maker would be able to find it easily in his stock.....can you imagine going today to the shoemaker and having a CUSTOM PAIR of boots made just for you..
Ahhhh...days gone by.
There is a small hole in the top probably where a rod would hold the form in place...I simply put a little tree star in the hole and added a little ribbon as a sort of anklet....repurposing for Christmas....I like that.
Have a sweet day dear friends,
