“Vintage shoes found me. My folks were looking into a few opportunities near their home in the way of shoe stores. While touring the building attached to one of the stores, they walked down the basement stairs into a trove of old merchandise. …The basement of the store was filled with old inventory dating as far back as 1938 when the store opened. I started opening boxes and each one was more exciting than the last. The shoes were in perfect condition. It was obvious that many of them had never even been out of the box.”
