cowboys and indians.

Ever since I have been organising A Vintage Hoedown with John Blek and the Rats which is happening next Wednesday in the store I have become worrying obsessed with everything that has a hint of western style, anything "Cowboys and Indians"catches my eye, I've been scanning the tv for old Western films and I have been trying on all the tassles, suede, check and gingham in the shop in the past week. I'm trying to get my hands on vintage red cowboy boots but it's a tough one as I'm being a little bit specific! Anyone seen a pair around?

  5. Argh, I had AMAZING red cowboy boots when I was about 15 - swapped them with my aunt for a dress. :-p
    I have some great vintage dancing costumes I got in Nashville - gutted I'll be missing this!

  7. ebay is usually pretty good. Have ye say im a bit excited about finding another irish blogging lady. Im claire.. im running heart handmade and im in belfast. I have ME/CFS and im pretty much house bound so that means I cant really meet local crafters so this is amazing.


    I searched ebay forever for cowboy boots to look like the ones my dad wore in the 70s (his are obv too big) and found a perfect pair for 6 quid that ended up being high heeled... uncomfortable to the max!
