Post 787 New Shoes for my journey

2011 April 07 Back in Dec of 2010 I decided to quit the American Ballroom Post 730 Not to dance dance lessons that I was taking. I didn’t realize it until a couple of weeks ago, that I had forgotten to take my shoes with me when I left. I went back to the hall and while the woman in the office remembered my paisley shoe bag, she also stated that she hadn’t seen it for months, so they must have walked away.

As they were my only pair of dress/casual shoes, I looked around for a replacement. I first tried the local Thrift stores but there was nothing my size or what I wanted. I then went to different shoe stores in town, and while I found a couple of pairs that I liked, I didn’t like the price tag as $159.00 was the cheapest plus taxes. Later I happened to be on Kijiji and did a search and found a pair of black casual/dress shoes for $15.00, said to have been worn only once. The woman selling them lived in London, about 1/2 hour away. I emailed her and made arrangements to see them on Thursday. I tried them on and they fit like a glove, so it was a done deal.

On the way home, I stopped in at a couple of thrift stores in London and at the second one, I ended up buying two more pair, a brown pair of casual, Rieker shoes, for $5.00 and a pair of burgundy Florsheim dress shoes h for $10.00. Both looked like new and the soles are hardly even scratched. So all total I spent $30.00 and got three good pair of shoes. I guess that means I’m gonna be travellin
