I’ve been looking for a pair of metallic ballet flats to replace a recently fallen apart pair, and last week I saw a pair on the Clarks website, reduced from over £40 to £17. Clarks do free home delivery as well, so I quickly ordered them, pleased with my bargain.
Before they arrived, however, I came upon this pair of Clarks ballet flats in my favourite Dr Barnardo’s charity shop, hardly worn, for the princely sum of just £1.99!
Obviously, I couldn’t resist such a bargain, and I snapped them up immediately. The pair I ordered from the Clarks website were duly returned from whence they came as soon as they arrived – I’d much rather pay £1.99 than £17!
They’re really comfy as well!
Another pair of shoes that had an outing recently is this pair of black heels, also originally from Clarks, and also a recentish purchase from a charity shop.
These were slightly more expensive, at £6.50, but as they were brand new, I didn’t mind paying a bit more. They, too, are super-comfy.
A lot of people are funny about buying second-hand shoes, but I don’t have a problem with it, as long as they’re not smelly, and they are in fairly good condition. What do you think?
