I love stuff like this too–my whole business is built around stuff like this. Love your blog, by the way.

There is something magical in the atmosphere of this shop.
Possibly in that there is over 100 years of history, and the knowledge that should original customers still be alive, they would still be purchasing their shoes from Lobbs – I am sure!
And to the blogger who wrote:
“How do we keep the wonderful craftsmen around us?…Modernity killed the craftsmen”
…. I am investigating this in my dissertation this year so you may be interested in contacting me, I would love to hear your thoughts on the topic!
This also applies to any others of you who read this.
