These shoes were meant for walking
BUT
when they were given to thrift stores, the owner of a small coffee
shop in Helen, Georgia, purchased them to put on the legs of
chairs as the chair legs had damaged the floor. He was ready to replace the floor , but will still use shoes for protection.
The dirty shoes is a result of patrons stepping on them.

"Welcome to Alpine Helen Nested in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Helen is one of the most beautiful sections of Northeast Georgia. This mountain community has a wide variety of natural attractions. Whether sightseeing on the Blue Ridge Mountains, visiting the beautiful Anna Ruby Falls, hiking the Appalachian Trail, or tubing down the Chattahochee River, this Bavarian town has something for everyone. The area also holds more than 200 specialty and import shops. Newcomers to Helen quickly fall in love with the spectacular mountain views, mild weather, and the festive atmosphere of the area. Helen is the natural choice for a great mountain vacation. Helen sponsors year-round events including a Trout Tournament, canoeing and rafting, Hot Air Balloon Festival, fireworks, Oktoberfest (Sept.13th-Oct. 28th), The Christmas lighting spectacle "Alpenlights", and Volksmarch which includes the Christmas walk "Alpine Stroll" and The spring Walk "A Walk in the Woods"

I visited Helen during Christmas vacation.

Good idea...just read about the place, and it sounds fabulous, especially the bit about 'beat the heat, come now'......heat? what's that? I seem to remember hearing about it :)))

Now that's a fantastic idea !! I will talk about to my husband as protections we put on our kitchenchairs do often escape !! So I must just put an advise note at the entrance of our building to get old shoes of our neighbours !! ;+))) lol

Helen, Ga. is a beautiful place in the mountains. That would be bad if the table and chair walked away from you!!!!!!
