In 30 years of being a cobbler, Randy has had a front row seat to the decline of his industry. He has worked in more than a couple shops when they closed their doors, once to be rehired at the same shop when re-opened under new ownership. This shop though, Sequim Shoe Repair, has been his personally owned business for almost 20 years. A shop that he remembers driving past back in the 80's when the store had a stage coach on it's roof. It came full circle when he purchased this shop around 2004. In an era of throwaway fashion, Randy stands as a last defense, helping this community breath new life into the footwear we depend on.
