While shopping for shoes for my adopted family, I found these pretty holiday shoes for me. I really couldn’t resist since they had them in my size, I NEEDED a burgundy dressy shoe, and, best of all, the price was $16 since I was buying another shoe.
You may remember, though, that I have a rule: if something new comes in, then an older item must go out. So, what pair of shoes was I ready to toss?
This pair has been great, but the inner soles are flattened, the leather is worn, and they are 20 years old. Even the box is falling apart. I noted the price I paid in 1993–$34–so I’ve gotten my money’s worth.
I’ll keep them around for the winter and wear them out in the yard when feeding the birds, squirrels, cats, or raking leaves.
