You just never know what you'll run across when thrifting...
Who wouldn't be thrilled to discover something like this? Well apparently, plenty of folks passed this item by, because I found it at, what I prefer to call the "last chance" Goodwill store. It's actually called the "as is" store, but come on, everything at Goodwill is "as is", isn't it?
It was originally marked $3.99, which I suppose was just too much for such an odd item. But remember, at the "last chance" store, everything is marked way down, so I got it for a mere .79 cents! It is a genuine antique shoe last, after all, embellished with genuine vintage stamps.
Judging by the overall patina, those stamps were added quite a while back. Yes, it is indeed an odd item, with no practical use, but I love it anyway. And did you notice the cute little vintage bow tie I found on the same day? It was right there in the same store, and I got it for a mere .29 cents. You just never know what you'll find, but it is certain that you won't find anything if you don't look!
