Suede and mink trimmed shoes

As the weather cools, the search for warm clothing begins. From the Society’s footwear collection, these dark brown suede booties are lined with sheepskin and trimmed with mink. The donor purchased these boots from Dayton’s in St. Paul, 1960-63.

    I have these shoes and was wondering the value of them.. I had picked them up at an Estate sale a couple of years ago. Do you have any other information on them?

    Thank you,

    Georgia Parsons
