A Cutting Edge Retail Model...With a Twist! PART 1

Hi everyone!

Well – what an exciting time – I am in the middle of it all right now! A Brand NEW, cutting edge internet/personal service footwear retail model! AND SO ARE YOU!!!

In years to come, I believe it will become a standard way to do business – but at the moment – it is cutting edge – and it is available NOW from Strathalbyn through to Victor Harbor.

On Line - What a Journey!

Well – here we are at last! And what a journey!

Needless to say things have changed a little since then – and thank goodness for that.

School Shoes – What Should We Pay – What Should We Buy?

Your child will take over 3,000,000 steps this year and I am guessing that most of them will be taken at school.
It is difficult these days to buy good shoes for our children when a lot of schools don’t have school shoe policies as such, because the kids will want to follow fashion – and for some reason this never equates to wanting shoes that are kind to their feet! Even when schools require the traditional black school shoes we have ads bombarding us with prices starting from $8! So we can pay from $8 to $130ish for school shoes – it’s a minefield out there…what to do?
