Finding a gem

April 28, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

I decided to head to the antique shops of Nanton for the afternoon…and found this little gem. For me, this was like finding a diamond, and I’m absolutely stoked! My Grandfather used to run a shoe repair business in Edmonton. Among all the shoe repair products and machines that he had, he used to have several shelves full of these ‘Biltrite’ rubber heels that he would use to repair customer shoes. I haven’t seen a box like this since I was 9 years old, but I was lucky enough to find this one in Nanton today, complete with the original rubber heels. I’m planning on framing this, along with two shoe repair hammers from his shop and hanging them on my wall. I love days like today, I’m absolutely thrilled to come across a find like this, I couldn’t be happier!
