Description

Vasile Faklis fits his granddaughter, Andea Faklis Kopacz, with a shoe as her mother Katie Faklis watches in 1966. Faklis' Department Store and Shoe Repair specialized then as today in shoes that are both stylish and healthy. The store still displays some of Faklis’ original shoe-making tools as well as a pair of heavy, weighted sponge divers' boots with his handwork in the leather coverings.
