Mark's Shoe Repair, Station Street, Ferntree Gully. Been there as long as I can remember, 1 man show, cash only, closes for 10mins at lunch - old school. We use him for shoe repairs, resoles, zip repair, leather restitching. He's always busy so it can't be just us that like him.

I'd love to throw a "like" at that!
(notwithstanding that I can offer exactly the same things as well...and then some. Got the tools, got the old machinery and patchers and stretchers...and love cash :-)
Lunch breaks are optional, though...

Hey Michael. What do you keep in the small container attached to your keyring?
Or is it a geocache I need to discover?

I'll see how Healesville goes, it's a good ride to and fro anyway.

Contains my GTN pills, something to pop under the tongue whilst I'm waiting for the MICA ambulance to arrive.
