Shop Window.. Cobbler, cobbler mend my boot!



Cobbler, cobbler, mend my shoe.
Get it done by half past two.
Half past two is much too late!
Get it done by half past eight.

In the window of 'Cobbler Express' in Piccadilly Arcade sits a cobbler whose hammer, although you can't see it here, never stops in the attempt to 'get it done'! In the brightly lit shop filled with many manly things, such as silver mugs, hip flasks, belts and key rings, some not quite so manly, I love that this wee cobbler is embracing his feminine side :) It is officially the 1st day of summer here in Australia.. let the sweltering begin! Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

  3. If that's the case then it should be the first day of winter here; it certainly feels like it and that cobbler would need his scarf over here.

  6. That little cobbler needs to take off the neck scarf now that summer has arrived. We have shops like this here too but, they are called shoemaker shops. I love your peek through the shop window! Happy summer!

  7. Fascinating take on the theme. I don't think I've seen a cobbler's place of business in 15 years. Times have really changed when it comes to footwear.

  8. Ha! We're "sweltering" here, too, Grace. Rain and 40F (4C). :-)

  13. Gosh! Didn't know this was here in Perth. I wonder does it smell of leather, I would spent time in an old cobblers place when I was very young & can still remember the smell. Keep happy, safe & take care 9a few warm days on the way.

  15. First I have my coffee then I mend my shoes. This cobbler has been mending shoes for a long time I think Grace.

  17. I'm tempted to say "cobblers" but that wouldn't be very polite would it? It's a nice display Grace and would tempt me in.

  23. I have an Amish friend who is a cobbler, nice to have old comfortable shoes rebuilt.

  24. Maybe it´s a female cobbler?
    I´ve seen a documentary on a cobbler-girl making quality shoes in Great Britain.
    Happy summer-time, Grace:-) 8C here.

  26. A very special window. I like it .

  27. I love this window display. Seems like shoe repairing has become somewhat of a lost art nowadays. Most people just throw them away and buy new ones!

  28. This is a really original idea for this theme day!
