Minnetonka Moccasins- The New Vintage Rage

Who knew that something I wanted very badly at age 10 would suddenly become the latest “fad”? When I attended summer camp as a kid everyone was wearing these and I wanted a pair more than anything. Every year I wanted a pair more than the previous year, but I never did get that pair of moccasins! Minnetonka’s have been around since the 1940’s and now I am the proud owner of two pair! Yee-Haw! Just the memories of wanting a pair of these for camp and finally having them has made me one happy camper! And the fact that my daughter in law and two grand-kids are wearing them also is very funny. These moccasins are great for all cowgirls out there. In the 40s Minnetonka’s were marketed for the camper and resort crowds and were sold in resorts and souvenir shops around the U.S. Now everyone wants a pair or two! Can you believe you can find them at Nordstroms (or online)?

      Cowboys’ mom had them also. I remember in the summers that is all she wore. Really miss her & know you miss your mom.
