Second hand bargain: Some espadrilles

The shoe of kings…


Such is the cruel nature of the nasty financial winter that men who once walked down the streets with their heads held high can now be found lurking in alleyways, weeping behind bins. Afraid to return home to the woman who demands perfection. They have nothing to give her any more – all the good meat at the good butchers isn’t reserved for their kind, and the only wine in his price bracket has already been guzzled by a tramp. These are appalling, mystifying times. Which is why we go bonkers and punch the sky whenever we hear about bargains. Just today, friend of the site Raymond thought he’d get in touch about a wonderful set of summer slippers. “I was in the local Cancer Research, and they were flogging these amazing espadrilles,” he told us, practically choking on his own joy, “so I bought about four pairs!” Four pairs? That is quite the bulk buy, Raymond, so come on, spill the beans, how much for these cork soled delights? “£3.50 a pair!”

Amazing sticking-it-to-the-recession!
