This May Be the One and Only Shoes in Miniature
As far as I can tell, my research has turned up no other active web sites or blogs that focus on miniature shoes and collections. I found many sites selling the collectible miniature shoe lines and there were some sites featuring craftspeople and artists dealing with miniature shoes, but no sites about miniature shoes themselves. There is usually a good description of these offerings and is therefore a good source of information when applied cautiously.
Canada Goose sale I not surprised there are so few resources. (How many miniature shoe collectors do you know?) When I first obtained this collection in 1993, nearly 15 years ago, I began to research the canada goose outlet washington dc various shoes. Then I came across Earlene Wheatley Glass Shoes, both in the first (1996) and second editions (2001). I later purchased Libby Yalom second book, Shoes of Glass 2 (2001). Canada Goose sale
I have recently discovered the existence of a third book on the topic. It is canada goose black friday instagram and Pottery Shoes by Anne Everest Wojtkowski (2004), but have yet to get a copy.
There is little written on the subject, though if you take a trip through almost any antique canada goose outlet locations in toronto store, you will find a variety of shoes from many differen eras at a variety of prices. Most people have at least one or two collectible or antique shoes in their homes. If you doubt this, consider canada goose online uk fake if you own Barbie shoes, Santa boots ornaments, the ubiquitous wooden Dutch shoe or the sentimental canada goose uk online store baby shoe planter.
canada goose uk shop If any of you are miniature shoe collectors or simply big fans, let me know. I would love to start an interest group or simply trade info back and forth. Eventually canada goose outlet uk fake I canada goose garson vest uk will have a website dedicated to miniature shoe collecting. canada goose uk shop

I loved each shoe so much, I would even spend the occasional Saturday morning dusting the shoe cabinet and each individual shoe. I was the only relative that showed any interest in her shoes and when she died in March, 1993 at the age of 91, she willed all the miniature shoes to me. canada goose
