Back in the day

Although I don't own a lot of vintage items, I understand why people are so drawn to them. There was actually a time when things were made to last forever.

Case in point...
These shoes were made in Italy. Can you guess what brand?



These Aldo shoes were bought in an outlet around 2001 for around $30 or $40 Cdn (as I remember). Yes....Aldo.

I do know that even mass-market items made in Asia (or India or Macau, etc.) are of good quality (see my previous post), but I miss those days when I don't have to buy designer  to get items made in Italy or France.

I guess this is the price we pay for capitalization and the need for profit.

Anyhoo, hope you guys have a great Wednesday:) Much love...

  1. Wow that's a pretty cool find...and I so agree...I miss buying non-vintage items that are made somewhere other than China. Thank goodness for all the amazing vintage shops :)

  6. Good thing you still have those sandals. That's a good brand too.
    Aldo shoes are now pretty expensive, huh?
    But some are made in good quality though.
