Best Shoe Repair: Hanna Shoe Repair

In today's world of disposable goods, we rarely think of repairing anything. Still, it's good to know that there's a place to take your favorite pair of loafers when they give out. Visiting Hanna Shoe Repair is like stepping into the 1940s. When you open the door, you'll be greeted by the scent of leather and shoe polish, and find an old-world shoemaker pounding away at his workbench. Like a bartender, the cobbler will hear you out sympathetically as you recite your shoe tragedy. And often, small repairs can be made while you wait.
