Gallery: J. Peterman English Pub Signs
Looking for an excuse to go shoe shopping? (Who isn't?) Well the style section of this week's Sunday Times got pretty interesting for shoe lovers come page 7, where a full page spread advertised that designer Christian Louboutin himself would be hanging out at Saks to autograph shoes this Thursday, February 7th.
So if you get an awesome new pair of heels autographed, or maybe an old favorite (will he sign shoes that aren't newly purchased?), will you then wear them and risk ruining it? Maybe it's better to buy two pairs -- one pair just for the signature and the other to actually walk around in.

Celebrities spend a lot of time signing autographs, but besides personal value the ones that really end up being worth lots of cold hard cash are the rarest ones. In today's day and age it's hard to get through a single day sometimes without signing for a credit card purchase or something else, but hundreds of years ago things were different. Even for somebody who spent most of his time with a quill in his hand.
For all the writing William Shakespeare did he apparently didn't sign his name very often. Today there are only six of the playwright's known authenticated signatures in existence, which helps make his John Hancock one of the most valuable in the world. One can be found on a conveyance for a house in London, one on a legal deposition, one on his mortgage documents, and three in his will. And any one of those is worth $3 million, seriously.
