So yesterday, a friend of mine told me of a half off sale at Famous Footwear. The shoes I bought last week were already falling apart, and Lemur needed a pair of Sunday shoes, so we decided to go to the mall and take advantage of the sale.

We arrived and looked through the whole store, finding nothing under $50 that I liked. And absolutely nothing for Lemur. Across the mall, we found a Payless where I had last week purchased the shoes that were now falling apart.

I walked in, showed them the shoes and they said they would exchange them, even without a reciept. I looked around for a pair that I liked that were just remotely comfortable . . . No luck.

But I did find a pair for Lemur and even for Rivulet (who has shown an affinity for shoes).

I walked out of Payless in my socks. It was fun.

Not amazingly, this story sounded funnier in my head. I guess it loses a lot in the re-telling. Hmmm.

It must be absolutely hilarious in your head, because it's still pretty darn funny in text from 1800 miles away.
You go, girl!

I liked it! May you never shop at Payless again for your own shoes. (I personally don't like it very much). Though I have found good shoe sales at JC Penny and other big box mall stores and also in Park City at the Outlet Mall. They usually have some sort of sale going on all the time.

Well thank you both. I was rewarded by finding some comfortable all leather super cute, make-my-legs-look-nice sandals at Walmart for an afordable price. So it all turned out well.
