About the VBC Exchange

I started the Vintage Cowboy Boot Exchange to match up vintage cowboy boots and other Western collectibles with new and caring owners.

The way the VCB Exchange works is simple. Every couple of weeks I will post a couple of items that are available for purchase or trade... vintage and custom made cowboy and cowgirl boots, books and other ephemera.

Each item will be accompanied by a photo and a description of condition, along with a price. Some of the boots offered will have two prices. The "as pictured" price is self explanatory. The "ready to wear" price includes cleaning and conditioning, new heel heel caps and sole protectors.

If you see a pair of boots that you are interested in purchasing or inquiring about a trade, complete the Need more info form and I'll take it from there. Be sure to mention what you're interested in on the subject line.

The things you'll find here are mostly from my collection. Some are signed by the artist, some are inscribed. All are collectible. All are in need of a new home.

Boots and other items that find new homes will be marked sold and deleted from the VCB Exchange ASAP. Please keep in mind that some items may not be available even though the listing still exists.
