Show & Tell


Yesterday while Bookworm was at her piano lesson I decided to spend a few minutes browsing in our local thrift store. This particular store is in a huge old warehouse building. All of the items are donated by the community, and the proceeds go to help feed and clothe needy folks in our area.

I wandered around looking for autumn decorations, but I didn't find any. As I was on my way out of the building, I passed by the shoe display. Normally I don't ever look for shoes at this particular thrift store because most of the ones donated are in terrible shape. However, yesterday I struck gold when I spotted these Cole Haan sandals in excellent condition.


A size 5 1/2, they're way to small for my foot, but they're just about right for Bookworm. If you're familiar with this brand, you know that Cole Haan sandals start at around $150 new. Guess how much this pair cost me? With tax, 54 cents, that's right CENTS!! I felt just a little bit guilty as I paid for the shoes and headed out the door, like I was stealing the shoes (I mean, come on, 50 cents!), but I love a good bargain. :)

Oh, wow, that is a wonderful deal! Maybe when Bookworm outgrows them you'll send them my way, LOL! :P Just kidding; they'd actually still be too big... I have a hard time finding shoes that are 5 and smaller. But, glad you were able to find something nice and in good condition!
