Back to the 80s with Craft Talk

from Vintage Repeats

Some vintage 1980s boots for sale on Etsy to go with this fabulous Craft Talk music clip. Produced for a Felt Club Craft Fair in the US - similar I think to our Handmade Expo - this number certainly portrays the passion of 'the crafter'. Maybe we need to be getting a group together! Which boots do you wanta wear....

I'm not usually much for the 80s, but those top orange boots are pretty awesome! Thanks for including my boots too!

fabulous as always. Your research, your photos, your commentary are impeccable. I always look forward to reading your posts.
I agree with MariesVintage that the orange boots are very creative.

How great is that video? I must admit to rather enjoying the 80's fashion revival. but then I really enjoyed being a teen in the 80's.

Fabulous footwear!

Checking out your wonderfully eye-catching buttons - have you looked into the Melange Team? It's a new mixed media etsy team

OMG Chrisy ... it's like you knew me in the 80's!!!! If I still wore heels I would have those red boots in a heartbeat!

I must be getting old. "Vintage '80s" sounds to me like an oxymoron.

Sam said...

Those first boots are actually very gorgeous! ...and what can I say about the '80s fashion pool? Mc Hammer pants, Stilletto magazine and bubble skirts! Awesome!

SimplyEverything said...

Woah, some great shoes. I really like the first pair. Probably not to wear, but I could picture them on display or something!

Hey Harriet said...

Love all the boots, makes me think of my 80's favs ...my knee high moccasins that laced up all the way. I thought I was so cool.

And the video! That will be in my head all day.

Thanks for selecting my boots too!
