These Boots Were Made for Talkin' (Vintage, that is)

Who: Maggie Sheesley

What: Vintage Cowboy Boots

Where: Antique Mall in Arnes, Iowa

How Much: $12

When I use It: I just got them a couple days ago but I have already worn them twice. Once with skinny jeans and a flannel shirt and another with a cute short dress. They are my new favorite item in my closet!

Shopping Tips: Look hard and dig for good items because a lot of nice stuff is hidden. I found these boots on a shelf up high and didn’t see them until I was about to leave. The best stuff is always hard to get.

    I saw those and was thinking “oh there are some like that in my town but they don’t fit me”… “hey they’re also $12…” “Wait! Those are the ones I saw in my town!”

    I love, love, love vintage cowboy boots! They’re already broken in, comfortable, and the leather is much better quality than most used today. Awesome find!
