|In my search for
information about the ruby slippers - I read the book, The Ruby Slippers
of Oz by Rhys Thomas, which is in my opinion is an indispensable behind
the scenes look at old Hollywood, he wrote of a man in North Carolina
that made ruby slipper replicas and sold them to other Oz fans.
This is where I got my first idea to make
my own pair of shoes (they were AWFUL!) When my ruby slipper
page was up and running - and when I started getting e-mail from people
- and we started trading pictures of each others shoes, well, it just grew
from there to be The Ruby Slipper Fan Club. It seemed that there
were so many people doing the same thing, looking for shoes, making shoes
that I thought, WHY NOT! Just like the lady that overlooks
this page - we just HAD to have those ruby slippers!
Listed below are some of my cyber friends,
and their shoes and/or related information.
