...Left foot forward into 2015

If you were to walk into a STORE CLOSING SALE, could you pass by an odd box filled with these??

Don't know what it is about them, but I dashed across the room to them - I HAD to rescue some!!

Could it be PURE nostalgia to the days we used to make our 'Annual, Start of school' visit to the nearby town that had an old-fashioned shoe store.  We'd walk in, browse the shoes, then go sit on a little bench until we were quickly greeted by JERRY ~ the 'ancient' owner, founder and local repairer of all that went on the feet.  Jerry would measure our feet, then disappear into the back room, and reappear with the correct size in each of the styles we wanted to try...

~OR~ is it the sleek industrial design, that makes me think a grouping of these on the right wall could be Totally Awesome?
~or maybe, it's the simplicity of use and the practicality of owning your own??!
any way you look at it...
...they 'measure-up'!!
(sorry, had to do it!)

I know I would have bought them if the price was right. The junker in me wants to think of an out of the box idea for them. I'll have to put on my thinker. :)
