Taking Advantage of the Misfortunes of Others

The hip shoe store in Downtown Town is going under, and I am now the proud owner of these ($40) and these ($50), while M is sporting these (also $50). I would feel more guilty if I hadn't bought my Goretex boots there, but I still feel a little guilty. Honestly, though, I don't buy shoes like that for retail (very often). And a huge number of the shoes she stocked were Naot, to which, as we all recall, I am allergic. Still, it feels kind of seedy to have nice new shoes at the price of someone's destroyed hopes.

Also? Blogger won't let me comment with my gmail account today, thus my livejournal account. (Yours is the 2nd blog that I had trouble commenting on.)

well, they would rather sell them than not sell them, even at these low prices, right? (I'd totally have bought all of those...)

Cute!

And I had a similar feeling when I bought a ton of half-off books at my favorite independently-owned bookstore which is in the process of going out of business.
