Becky's Briar Patch

Etsy has a huge vintage following. I think it's pretty cool too. I'm not exactly into vintage exactly but I do some things that catch my eye and usually when they do I can see the beauty in the piece. To each their own!

When I saw these turquoise snake skin shoes, made by Salvatore Ferragamo, at Becky's Briar Patch I was instantly attached to them. It's too bad my debit card won't freely allow me to purchase them. Well, that and I'm not exactly a size 7.5 shoe. Darn!

The shop owner even describes her history with the shoes which is fasinating!

I found these shoes decades ago in a high end thrift store in Nashville TN. The owner of the store bragged saying that these shoes were brought in by a famous country singer. She wouldn't tell me who it was, but I like to imagine which star strutted these around on stage.

There's only one rule that comes along with these shoes - if you buy them, you have to wear them. You can not let them sit in the back of your closet.

I love these shoes, I have seen similiar pairs in different colors throughout the years. Excellent taste!

Is it just me? They look dirty. Personally, I could not wear Vintage shoes. That would bother me to wear someone else's shoes!

I have to agree w/Roseanne. I would not wear someone else's shoes.
