A bargain buy of shoes!
Some days the sun shines, at least figuratively: it certainly wasn’t shining in Melbourne today very much. Spring, yet it was snowing within cooee of Melbourne.
If I haven’t mentioned this before, I HATE shopping. With a vengeance. But I need new shoes. I had not yet replaced the ones I broke the heel on after I got back from the wedding!
I stopped at our local supermarket today and there is a cute shoe, bags and accessories shop opposite. I love their stuff, so I had a peep. These suede shoes were on sale for $50, reduced from $125. Now that is a bargain in anyone’s language. Depending on your currency, I suppose. I’ll admit they are unusual.
There was a black pair and a taupe pair, both in my size; the last in stock. The shop owner told me once they are the last, it is better to sell them because otherwise customers keep asking for other sizes so they end up being a waste of time.
I liked the black ones, but summer is coming. What to do, what to do! I tried both pairs on and pranced around the shop. Apart from the attractive price, they were comfortable. As any woman will say, finding comfortable shoes can be a battle at the best of times!
“I tell you what, if you take both pairs, you can have them for $80.”
A win-win situation: she got rid of “time-wasting” shoes and I got a bargain. We were both happy!
The heel is quite interesting……. apparently this is a
rip-off copy of the last winter Prada heel design. THESE are not Prada, but I’ll go with the flow.
So I came away with two pairs of shoes for $80, saving $170. Not a bad effort for a Friday night spur of the moment purchase!
Apologies for the photography – I just snapped these with the phone because really, bragging about buying shoes would be senseless without pictures. Yes, I have big feet – so what? “These boots are made for walking…..”
