Don't you just love a good idea?
I do. .
and when I heard the story about Tom shoes I was on the bandwagon quick.
Tom Shoes gives a needy child a pair of shoes for every pair of shoes they sell.
Check here for their story.
I plan to order more shoes online but it seemed like it would be a good idea to locate a retailer and try some on for size.
I called up Grandgirlie. .and she answered the phone. ..recognized my voice and said. .
"oh hi grammie". . .and I said. ."are you busy? do you want to go shopping with grammie?"
(I know I should have said. ."shopping with me")
She said. . ."okay" and hung up.
I picked her up and we travelled to the nearest retailer and not surprisingly. . she picked pink shoes.
( I wondered then aloud if she had any long sleeved pink T shirts for fall. ..and when she didn't think so. .
we shopped for those next.)
Since the other grands were not along on our shopping trip.. .
we called to check on shoe sizes and proceeded to select shoes.
Since their sizes were picked over. .
we only brought home one extra child's size ...
I thought it would be only sensible for me to select a pair as well so that when my girls and I have an online shoe shopping party. .
we have a good idea how to judge adult sizes. .
according to mine.
And so we brought home three shoe boxes. ..
and though they look a little like a slipper. . .
I love my pair.
And if you didn't think you needed any new shoes for fall. .
you might have by now. .
changed your mind.
all for now. .
