If the shoe fits!

The best reads tend to be pretty heavy--both in their weight and their subject matter--and when it comes to taming those tremendous tomes with a touch of panache, Breck Armstrong's quirky bookends are just the right fit. Breck's ample, solid iron bookends are soldered with vintage wooden shoehorns that harken to an earlier age, adding an impressive, archival touch to your library. While less sturdy bookends would be shaking in their shoes, these strong shelf accents keep even your heaviest hardcovers from dancing off your shelf. Handcrafted in Michigan.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

It seems that old objects are just in his blood, some nostalgic essence. So it's only natural, Breck Armstrong would turn old stuff into new treasures. A ceramist at heart, that passion is on hold until the time comes to bring that aspect into his current life, but for now Breck's love for old houses, fixing old things and breathing new life into the found objects will hopefully bring you joy in your purchase! Thank you kindly for taking a piece in Breck Amstrong.

    Comments about VINTAGE SHOE FORM BOOKENDS:

    My husband, a podiatrist, and I recently celebrated our 5th wedding anniversity, known as the wooden one. I thought this was the perfect gift, which it was, and included a special note about all the symbolism it entailed. Great craft; the gift was a huge hit!

        I can't stop looking at these beautiful bookends. They are so unique. A must-have for book lovers. These little pieces of history are supporting some of my favorite history books.
