Restory your shoes and bags

I waved goodbye to my blue, winter, crepe soled boots as they were taken away by The Restory, a new on-demand shoe and handbag repair and restoration service in Notting Hill. The zip had gone and I was worried about who to entrust them to as I love them. The Restory promises to have sourced the very best menders in London and so your damaged shoes et al.,will be collected from your home or office and whisked to the top man in the shoe and bag field and then returned a few days later in a canvas tote with a label and tissue paper, like a gift. Mine came back yesterday, all fixed, looking almost new. I can now get on with the winter, suitably shod in my favourite boots. Notting Hill local Vanessa, the founder of this ER for leather goods explains, “our expertise ranges from traditional shoe and handbag repairs, to speciality services like colour restoration, hardware replacement and sole painting. I have sourced all the best cobbler and leather specialists in the London area bringing the highest level of craftsmanship together with the ultimate convenience of collection and return to homes or offices.”. Shoes, boots and bags can – don’t have to – but can cost a packet and it is horrendous when a  dodgy cobbler makes a mess of them. So if you have anything you really love I highly recommend this new service. And I like the name The Restory – restoration and giving your stuff a new story, lovely. the-restory
