Margaux and Walter Kent's Profile

About

We are husband and wife with a boy called Søren and a boy
called Silas. We live and work in Philadelphia, Penna.
Our work is made from olde things, treasures found and
recovered from misfortune and neglect, relics of the unusual,
the confused and the macabre, cut and pulled and built
into wearable curiosities, inscribable keepsakes and useable,
longlasting treasures.
We used to make them for ourselves and now we make them
for everyone.

We ship daily!

We initially set out to make shoes. We do not know how though and decided to begin with what we do know. But still the title of our shoppe remains the title of the song that goes:

Peg and Awl, (version by the Carolina Tar Heels)

In the days of eighteen and one, peg and awl! (twice)
In the days of eighteen and one, peggin’ shoes is all I done,
Hand me down my pegs, my pegs, my pegs, my awl.
In the days of eighteen and two, peg and awl! (twice)
In the days of eighteen and two, peggin’ shoes is all I do,
Hand me down my pegs, my pegs, my pegs, my awl.
In the days of eighteen and three, peg and awl! (twice)
In the days of eighteen and three, peggin’ shoes is all you’d see,
Hand me down my pegs, my pegs, my pegs, my awl.
In the days of eighteen and four, peg and awl! (twice)
In the days of eighteen and four, I said I’d peg them shoes no more.
Throw away my pegs, my pegs, my pegs, my awl!
They’ve invented a new machine, peg and awl! (twice)
They’ve invented a new machine, prettiest thing you ever seen,
Throw away my pegs, my pegs, my pegs, my awl!
Makes one hundred pair to my one, peg and awl! (twice)
Makes one hundred pair to my one, peggin’ shoes ain’t no fun,
Throw away my pegs, my pegs, my pegs, my awl!
