Thrifty Shoes

I wear my shoes until they have no more umph left in them, which is typically for years. This past fall is when my fall/spring shoes finally expired. Over the winter I’ve just worn my boots so haven’t really needed to find new ones, though somewhere in the distance I can see spring popping up. I’m not a huge fan of shoe shopping, I can never seem to find exactly what I want/need for the kind of price I’m looking for. I need practical shoes, but let’s face it, I want them to look cute too. My mom and I went to the thrift store on Saturday and I was pretty happy to see these. They were all in my size, practically brand new, and the perfect price. So for a mere $13 bucks, I am 3 pairs of shoes richer. These are my favourites. I just love them. On a side note, do you remember my granny square laptop cover? I love the cover, but I just haven’t grown to love the colours, so I have decided to sell it. It holds a 13" MacBook perfectly (not really sure about PC laptop sizing, sorry) and I’m selling it for $35 plus actual shipping. If anyone is interested, please e-mail me at jennifer@thegirlbythesea.com. Hope everybody had a great weekend. We’ve got a busy week here, and my brother is coming into town at the end of the week, yeah!

    I’m so jealous of your finds! you’re so lucky! I was actually shoes shopping this morning but there was nothing I liked and i like shoes/boots to be really comfy…I so need a new pair, my old pair got wrecked when I stood too near the sea, got covered by a massive wave, got soaking wet and wrecked my shoes with the salt water. That happened about a year ago and i still haven’t replaced them…………. *ahem* I have a cute pair of balet pump style leather shoes but they aren’t great for the middle of winter! LOL My toes get kind of cold.

    Great finds! I’m jealous – I am always looking but never finding the perfect find at the thrift shops. The shoes are just fabulous and to get 3 pair in your size is incredible lucky I think. Must have been meant to be!

    Love the red ones! You find the best bargains.

    Your little guy sure looks cute with his braces on. Glad it’s been a good experience so far.
