That's an art you don't see much anymore. Have a fabulous day and week, Veronica. ♥
They don't here but what a talent! I would like watching their work!Betty
I'm not sure they are cobblers, but there are shoe repair stores here. Not many, but they do exist. They are not on the streets here though.
No I've not seen anyone like that.
The answer to your question is a resounding "no". People do not repair shoes anymore, they throw them away. So many old skills are being lost forever.
Hello,No, I have never seen them. I live in a rural area, miles from a town and city. Great people shot. Enjoy your day, wishing you a great week ahead.
We need those in our throw away world. So much could be salvaged. The last little shop run by and older gentleman in our town is now gone so not sure if there is anyone that does that anymore. Sure would be fun to watch this fella do his talents.
Concerning shoes I rather live where you do! The last time I went, the shoemaker haughtily said, "I'm not going to repair this. It's plastic!"So, I wished this guy lived in my neighborhood, because I have a lot of "plastic" shoes:):) Always love your interesting links to All Seasons! Have a great week!
Finding a shoe repair shop is very hard, and a street cobbler is unheard of. We are such a throw-away society these days. I like to repair things whenever I can. - Margy
What a great photo! No, we don't have cobblers any longer in my neck of the woods, which is a shame. I honestly don't know where I would go to get a shoe fixed. I would have to just throw it out and buy new ones, which seems wasteful!
Don't see it here in London anymore either which is sad really Have a cobblertastic week :-)
It's good to see that the skill is still alive and well! We had a shoe shop where the owner did most of his own repairs but he retired not long ago :(Thanks for linking up at 'My Corner of the World' this week!My Corner of the World
I knew one years ago but not any more!
They still do it in Italy, but they have their own shops.Have a nice week!
In Romania there are still. :)Have a nice day!
I haven't seen any street cobblers even when traveling but I still see cobbler shops around. Hopefully it does not become a lost art.www.chezmireillefashiontravelmom.com
Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥
He is keeping busy!
That's just great! Unfortunately we don't see any shoemakers on the streets anymore. When I was a kid, that was still there!Best, Julie
There was one in the mall, but he closed shop about 10 years ago.
No street cobblers. I think we may have one shoe repair place left. I do have fond memories of the repair place my Dad used to use, back in the early 1960's.
Wow. A street cobbler! We have cobblers here, but they usually have a brick and mortar storefront operation.
I think we have no shoemakers anymore at all ! Shoes have become so cheap that repairing them is more expensive ! Street cobblers I have only seen in North Africa.
interesting. No, there are none where I live. Hardly even a shop anymore. :(
That's a really great photo.Thank you for your comment with me.Greetings Eva
This is awesome. I wish they still existed in my corner of the world. So many people I know would rather get their shoes fixed than buy new ones.
No: not here in Delaware. #TrafficJamWeekend
A dying breed indeed!
I haven’t seen one for years and years . But I think about them every time I throw away a pair of shoes and feel guilty about it.
Oh yes, they do. I've seen quite a few in the vicinity although their number has now dwindled over the past 10 odd years! Lovely post, Veronica. Thanks for joining us. See you this week too. :)Have a fabulous week ahead.
Yes they do!
Very much so. We have loads of such things from the old world, Veronica. And I'm so glad we do. :)Hope you are doing well. Much love <3
That seems to be a thing of the past in my neck of the woods. There used to be a couple of shoe repair stores, but I don't think those are around anymore either.
Nope, not something we see here. There used to be a shoe repair business but they closed several years ago.
What a wonderful post, Vero. Just happened to chance upomn it from the old #WW link ups on my page. Yes, we have old school cobblers and they work so hard come rain or shine. Sitting outdoors all day to make a living. I should share a photo with you sometime. We have one right across our condo. A gentle, smiling man.Love and hugs.
