A New Use For Old Boots

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 22 May 2014 in Miscellaneous.

Old boots are part of the unique decorations at the The Purple Buffalo, a small, Mom and Pop store located in the little community of Buffalo Gap. Just 6 miles south of Abilene, Texas, it is like stepping back in time. Ancient oak trees, quiet streets and friendly people. The town of Buffalo Gap was first established as a hunter's camp in the 1870's and became the county seat of Taylor county for a while.

The Purple Buffalo opened its doors in 2000 as a stained glass studio and through the years added antiques, custom jewelry, stoneware pottery, and mountain dulcimers.

Nicely done! I see they are featuring boots! I may need to go down and pick up a pair. They do have two of each, don't they?

What a delightful place! I love seeing the boots hung like this. I have seen boots used as planters, but never like this.
