When it comes to footwear restoration, the experts at Cobbler’s Bench Shoe Repair don’t just go through the motions. Instead, they put in the extra effort to return each pair to a like-new condition, a quality instilled by the company’s founders, Charles and Sara Stern, in 1946. All repairs are completed within three days and use equal or better materials than the original manufacturer, which helps protect shoes from environmental damage and teasing from snobby loafers. Cobbler’s Bench also maintains an offsite plant with special equipment to carry out particularly complicated repairs.

This cupcake is actually an evil prince, most likely imprisoned by a dryad as punishment for denying the dryad a carriage ride when she was in the guise of an old crone. End its misery, but chew carefully, there is a gold coin in the middle that will duplicate itself a hundredfold if left overnight in a bowl of saltwater.
