Cobbler's Cafe, Elizabethtown, Kentucky
So long, good bye, its been good to know you
Fare well, do tell, What a good job you've done.
We'll miss you, would kiss you but you're done on the trail
Good luck, God Speed, You've done your good deed,
So go now, be well, we're all glad we knew you.

Cobbler's Bench Shoe Repair in Frederick, MD
A charming Greek cobbler keeps a tradition alive in Everett, WA
Artist Elizabeth Person ... did this drawing ... and wrote: .“A few years ago, I stumbled upon an unassuming repair shop in downtown Everett. When I walked into People’s Shoe Repair, I was greeted by blaring classical music, framed presidential portraits, stacks of newspaper, and rows upon rows of gleaming shoes.
The sole proprietor, Mike Papadimitriou, gets right down to business … You won’t find a computer in People’s – no credit cards accepted, no email address and definitely no website. It’s all done the old-fashioned way. On foot, in hand, by word of mouth.
So here’s to the man who has dedicated his career to repairing what’s broken, and shining what’s dull, in his humble shop, in our humble Mill Town.”
@Nancy Hart What an interesting guy! ....and thanks for the comprehensive link!
A Cobbler Who Goes The Extra Mile
On the eastern outskirts of Salt Lake City, Daniel Ruger practices an ancient craft that is slowly disappearing from western, consumer society: he is a cobbler. His shop speaks of an almost bygone era when work was painstakingly done by hand with the help of rock-solid machines that contained no electronics whatsoever.
I know a couple who loves antique furniture. They used to go to estate sales all the time. They have a coffee table just like this in their living room. I think it is a cobbler's bench. This one could be a reproduction.
Yeah... this is probably authentic. I guess, it depends on how rough you want it to be.
