Truly Unique Footwear Style

Like many women out there, I have a "thing" for shoes. I love shoes and have tons and tons of them. At the same time? I can never have too many. There's always another pair just around the corner waiting with my name on it.

Because of this, Scholarly Articles is one of those shops where I could spend hours! Why? Because she sells SHOES.

Yes, you heard me right, *shoes* on Etsy! Unique and interesting shoes too. One-of-a-kind hand-painted vintage shoes to be exact. (She does handbags too, btw, and both are beautiful.)

She hand-paints all of her shoes and handbags with professional-quality leather paint and then seal them with an acrylic leather sealer. This process allows the painted leather to stretch and bend without damaging the artwork depicted on it.

Not only that, but all bags and most of the shoes are vintage, with a few newer shoes thrown-in for women with feet that do not fit into vintage. And she welcomes custom requests as well!

If you're looking for the perfect gift for someone who appreciates one-of-a-kind wearable art or eco-conscious fashion, you should definitely check out Scholarly Articles! For that matter, if you love shoes or handbags? The same applies!

I'll have to get me some of that leather paint! I love drawing and painting almost as much as I love shoes - and this seems as a great way to make an old pair of shoes brand new!
