Startup company Cobbler Concierge is reattaching heels, stitching purses and polishing scuffs, all without a trip to the cobbler.

The new site charges a flat rate of $80 per pair of men's shoes, $40 per pair of women's shoes and $100 per bag. Included in this price is a packaging kit with return postage. Upon receipt of their kit, users pack their item and send it back to Cobbler Concierge's workshop. Cobbler Concierge makes the well-loved shoes or bag look good as new and then sends it back to its grateful owner. The site even allows users to track their item's progress with before and after pictures.

Cobbler Concierge CEO Pettus Randall says that the company was born out of a desire to offer the quality of shoe repair that is only accessible in a few select markets (New York City or Paris, for example) to the rest of the country.
