WW Benson Shoe Repair {Linky}


The 16 year old – Mica went out of the house with the family. He amused me when we passed this shop. 

“Mom that place has two kinds of customers… 

The WWII VET that is a traditionalist. They feel the need to go there because they only have one pair of shoes, and want to support businesses that do things the hard way. They tell the owner the same story every time they go in. 

 Their other type of clients are 25 year olds. They like retro things, are purest's, don’t like to fill the landfills with more crap us Americans buy, and know businesses like this will close down, so they go there.” 

 Ok then!

This picture is nice and I like the strong message that you shared. Traditionalists and also the young generation, both go to such shops for reasons. And these reasons are valid for sustainability of such businesses.
