The answer is they are known as cobbler’s “dollies”. Here is an illustration showing how they were used.
The old cobbler’s dollies are now on display in our wannabe inspirational/atmospheric window!
We dropped into the shop on the way back from North Wales
You might be able to see them if you enlarge the picture..
You will probably notice my reflection in the window taking the picture. (classic schoolboy error)
I have found a book with some illustrations of old shoe repair tools, I will try to upload them to the website.
Things are moving on with our rebranding.
I need to source some signs and window decals and some old gold/ mustard colour work wear.
Terry has a camera now so we can post pictures of some of the interesting jobs that we do.
Thats right, Starzec’s are a classic cobblers shop but we’re moving into the digital world – stay tuned for some of our updates. We are aiming to make it easier for you, the customer, to find out news about Starzec’s including products, services and opening times.
If you have any thoughts of feedback about our repairs, keys, engraving, we’d love to hear them to make sure you get in touch!
Who knows, maybe we’ll be on twitter next!
