Tree of Shoes

When wandering through estate sales and flea markets, I often find a small booty or a worn child's shoe from the turn of the century tucked away in a box of mementos. I imagine that child taking it's first step or another child playing and jumping until the shoe is worn and in need of repair. If we could only see what those shoes saw, what a fun experience that would be.

My friend Nancy has been collecting a variety of baby shoes and booties for years. This year, she finally pulled them all out and put them together on a beautiful green noble tree. The tree is filled with small shoes and booties of all shapes and sizes, some formal and some designed for everyday use. Stop by the shop and join us in admiring this beautiful tree!
