60's Hudson's Bay Company Silver Shoes


Very cute 1960's metallic silver pilgrim pumps from The Hudson's Bay Company.  Leather uppers and lowers 

The size is unmarked, but I am an 8 1/2 (which is a 39 European) and they fit me well. 
I bought these for a costume party and have never worn them since. They just aren't my usual style. 


Length: 10"
Width: 3"
Heel Width (Inside): 2"
Heel Height: 2 1/4"

Label: Hudson's Bay Company

Very Good - Good - Some wear along toe and there are a few scratches along the sides as well. The inner leather on the right shoe has started to turn in (see second photo). There is usual wear on the soles of the shoes (see third photo). Leather is pliable. These shoes are in very wearable condition! These shoes are a pair, but one label reads "Hudson's Bay Company. Made in Italy" and the other shoe has a different label I can't make out. They fit the same and look identical, so I'm not sure why they have different labels. Just wanted you to know.

70's Coral Suede "Hasbeen's" Look-a-Likes


A cute pair of 1970's "Hasbeen's" look-a-likes. These are incredibly comfortable shoes! The sole is cushioned and in near new condition! The suede is soft and pliable, but strong and the soles are still in great shape. The heels and lowers of this shoe are plastic, but have great ribbed grips under the ball of the foot. 

I'm selling these because my toes are too short for the pointed tip of the shoe and I think they look funny. I love these shoes though. They have a great pseudo 40's look in my opinion. 
They are labelled an 8 / euro 39. I believe they would fit someone with an 8-9 sized foot easily. Please check the measurements below for a more accurate fit!


Length: 10"
Width: 3"
Heel Width: 2 1/4"
Heel Height: 3 1/4"

Size:  8 / 39 euro

Excellent - The only wear on these shoes is on the soles. The suede uppers are in near perfect condition, as are the soles. This is a very wearable pair of shoes.

60's Mod Purple Suede Shoes


These 60's mod shoes are so unique and cute! You're guaranteed to get many compliments on them! The photos don't quite do them justice. The colour is deeper and more vibrant, more of a royal purple rather than this washed out looking purple in these photos. You won't be disappointed with these beauties, I promise!

I rescued these shoes from Value Village last year. I couldn't leave them there despite them not being remotely my style. I haven't been able to let them go until now. I think they deserve to be with someone who will love and wear them. They are labelled a size 8 B and I would say they are quite true to size. Even though I'm a size 8 1/2 I fit them relatively well. due to the width in the vamp.

Heel Height:

Label: The Villager
Size: 8 B

Very Good - Excellent - These shoes are in great wearable condition! They have the original matching suede laces. There is some wear on the leather inside the heel due to normal wear. There is also some normal wear on the heels and around the sole on the suede due to normal wear. The only real flaw I can see on these shoes is one small cut approx. 1/4" in length on the toe right by the sole on the right shoe. It is barely noticeable when worn due to how low down it is.

80's Buttercream Snakeskin and Leather Clutch


This is a beautiful leather and snakeskin clutch I picked up second hand. I've only used it once or twice, so it's time to let it go. 

I love this bag because it could be used at night without the strap or during the day with. It's very versatile. 


Length: 11 1/4"
Height:7 3/4"
Depth: 1 1/4" 
Strap Length: 47"

Label: Shantung

Excellent - Snakeskin  and leather are in amazing condition. Both are soft and supple with no major marks or  scratches. There is some discolouration on snakeskin only visible when the flap is opened (see third photo)
