More evidence that our readers really do love shoes comes to us today in the form of this closet submission from reader AEJ.
As she notes,
I had to move my shoes to our foyer closet, but I’m starting to get afraid that the weight of those hanging shoe-shelves is going to bring down the rack! My collection is very modest right now but that’s because I’m just starting. Give me time… Give me time…
The only commonality I have seen among the various closet photos our readers send us is that the shoes are most often purchased for the basic love of them… After which, we then are all left to devise storage solutions for homes and apartments that are rarely designed to accommodate our particular obsession and its attendant space needs.
Which brings me to the following, updated, photo that I received from AEJ after I sent her a short note to let her know I was writing about her closet this week.
Well, I’m ashamed (or proud?) to admit that my closet has changed a lot since July.
Here’s a more recent pic.
*With apologies to AEJ that her email was temporarily overlooked in my badly over-filled inbox….It seems that you do, indeed, find gold among the dross, as it were.
As always, if any of our readers would like to share their closets on the main blog page, please send an email with (PG please) photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise, you can always post shoe-closet or other shoe-related photos on our more informal forum pages.
