Vintage Boots Score!
My friend Marc recently got use of his parents car, so the first thing on our minds was to hit a few thrift shops that are difficult to reach by metro. We also took advantage of the fact that we wouldn't have to be hauling our finds around by hand, and really packed the car to maximum capacity. Marc was on the search for leather belts he could carve up and old leather jackets and bags he could cut up for his Broundoor line, and actually caused quite a ruckus at one store when he literally filled an entire shopping cart with great old belts!
When I'm thrifting I try to keep an open mind and not go in looking for one specific thing, but rather just keep my eyes open for general awesomeness. Sometimes the thrift gods send you a variety of things, and sometimes they just throw a whole whack of one sort of thing at you. This time, I got really lucky, and the thrift gods decided it was a boot sort of day.
So I'm happy to say we have a whole slew of new boots down at the shop, in a whole variety of sizes (although if you're around a size 7, you always have a few more options than most people, curse you size 7s!). These pics are just a few of the options I found, you'll have to brave the cold to see all the choices. All our boots go from $35-$40, and our vintage shoes are $15-$30, enjoy!
