Dreams Do Come True: Visiting the Haines Shoe House
There is no rhyme or reason why some things take up residence in your imagination. For years now, I have had a hankering to visit the Haines Shoe House.
Kenny and I passed it once while heading down Route 30 about 5 years ago but never doubled back to visit. Since then, it has been a big boot-shaped ghost in my mind. I’ve been haunted.
Well, baby… I’m happy to report that I have FINALLY set foot inside the big shoe and it was wonderful. ::weeps::
The fabulous Wendyvee of Roadside Wonders once mentioned something on Twitter to the effect of “they serve ice cream in the heel.” As I took my helmet off and excitedly squealed those words to Kenny, he looked at me like I was an idiot. You’d think I would be used to that by now.
It is worth the trip. Shoe house, I love you!
