A warm Blue Ribbon
Bears welcome to "Ruffles" shoe shop - Antique
and Vintage Shoes for Antique and Vintage Paws!
Ruffles my dear baby Steiff
lives with us all here in Northampton. Northampton has a long history for
the shoe and boot trade, with factories such as Churches, Trickers, Barratts,
Loakes to name but a few all making their homes here. Ruffles loves her
shoes. so much so that she has decided with me to host her very own pages on
the site, offering her Antique and Vintage Teddy Bear friends the chance to
trip the light fantastic in an historical pair of shoes. All the shoes you
will find on these pages are little treasures.
Some may have taken their first
steps nearly a century ago, some will have indeed aided those first wobbly
moments, others are Sunday Best shoes...High button boots, Mary Jane's, crib
shoes, moccasins, all your favourites here in one shop. Who better to be the
next owners of these wonderful shoes, than your favourite old bear. Ruffle
as you can see has indeed taken some training in the art of fitting and is
happy to check for fit by you sending your bears foot measurements...she
will make sure there is room for growth and no claw pinching! Even Connery
my Antique Bing Bear forgot he was still modelling a sweet Girlie dress when
Ruffle was fitting his stunning Victorian High Button boots.
So, open the screen, walk this
way and enjoy a treat for feet!
