Boot/Shoemakers News

Was your Grandfather (or Grandmother) a shoemaker? Perhaps an Uncle? Or maybe just someone you knew and remember from childhood. Tell us the story.

Rick,

Congratulations on the media attention.

You'll, no doubt, have people refering to it for years to come. I still have people refer to articles I had been featured in years ago. They'll think about it for some time until the time is right.

Good stuff for all of us!
Good Luck to you.

Paul

All,

The Boston Globe had a nice article today about Peter Limmer cutom boots in Intervale, New Hampshire.

No fan of Facebook, me, but this is simply classic...very very nice, almost a water colour.

Fantastic!!
Who's portrait is hanging in the corner? Looks like George Washington, but I can't tell for sure.

Geez, I want a fireplace in my shop...

George Washington?! Sir, that's your King, George III. Why would we want a portrait of a French & Indian War militia colonel from Fairfax County, with a bad command of French on the wall?

My name is Susan McPhail and I am Mr. Cantrell's long-time partner and friend.
I know Jesse Lee loved this site and contributed to many.
Jesse is soon to be admitted to palliative care in failing health.
I wanted to post something to let folks know but was unsure of how to do this appropriately. I wanted to reach out to his fellows to let them know.

Much appreciated!
Susan

Without "good" there is no "better," without "better," no "best."
And without the recognition that there is a hierarchy of excellence in all things, nothing rises above the level of mundane.
