a really good shoe….

$399.99 after $180 OFF   Garbo Chair 2-pk   Bonded Leather

Every once-in-a-while, we do something good, when we don’t even know we did it. 

In an earlier post, I extolled the virtues of something called Renu Leather.  This is the stuff I claimed to be made from reclaimed leather….leather scraps and stuff.  Well, I’ve been corrected.

Renu Leather is made from recycled shoes.  That’s right, recycled shoes.

So, instead of sticking these unwanted, smelly things in the landfill, they’re ground up and repurposed to become something new again.  In this case, these old shoes become a new chair.

And, by the way, for a limited time, you can get these two Renu Leather chairs at Costco for $399 delivered to your door.  That is not a misprint, $399 a pair, delivered!

How cool is that?


  1. Wow that is really cool. Kinda makes me want to get a pair.

  2. Just proves, we are never too old to learn something new every day! :)
    Renu leather .... good stuff. -Brenda-

    P.S: Re your title. Flashbacks of Ed Sullivan on the tube.... "really big 'shoe' tonight".

  3. Brenda,
    I can't get anything past you.

  4. Why, THANK YOU Tom. I shall take that as a compliment. :)
    With much appreciation considering its source. -Brenda-
