Vintage Shoes & Foot Items – Look For Them At Estate Sales

For the first Thursday of 2016 we remember when Saddle Shoes were the popular choice for children’s shoes and a Brannock Company measuring device was used by the shoe store salesman to determine what size was required. We also came across this brief video of an old shoe stretcher that was purchased at an estate sale.

Be sure to look for these and other great vintage shoe and foot items at estate sales.


What’s old is new – at least in shoes – estate sale shopping

Thought we would end this week with vintage shoes and new shoes. This glamourdaze video is a great clip on 1940’s shoes. Note the wedges, straps, and overall shapes. When shopping at an estate sale keep a look out for good condition vintage shoes.

Here is a pair of vintage shoes that I purchased at an estate sale a few years ago. Toes are rounded with a nice 3 inch solid black heel. The label says Very Volatile.



Take a look in your closet and compare what you see to the styles on the video. Surprise! What’s old is new.
