Collecting Vintage Shoes and All Kinds of Things

The wonderful thing with being a collector of many vintage items is I end up with all kinds of little boxes and things. It's no wonder that when my husband needed a bag that wouldn't leak when he filled it with ice and placed the bag of ice on his ailing shoulder that I had the perfect thing. In my collection I had a Comfort Bag. No really, a folding ice cap water bottle bag for cold and hot applications from the 50s or 60s. It even had the original box. So I filled the comfort bag with water and placed it in the freezer for the afternoon treatment. I have lots of vintage. Take these red, white and blue shoes in a size 9. You might think they look like a great clown outfit but no, at one time, these were very cool and complimented navy slacks and a red shirt. That was the 70's. So what are you collecting today?

  1. Hello Rocky, these shoes remind me of 'Jam' shoes from England in the 80s. I love vintage shoes, are the brogues US? Cheers Howard. http://www.vintagefanfare.co.uk

    1. Hi there!

      These were definitely made in the US in the 70's so ten years earlier than Jam shoes in England. Aren't they just delightful?

      Thanks for the note.
