I have a very old pair of shoes that I love but . . . they are very old shoes.
Just round the corner a tiny little shoe mender's shop has opened, run by a nice Bulgarian man. In the window he put a sign "shoes made to measure". I asked, more on the off-chance than anything, could he copy my old red shoes?
Yes, he said and he has made me a pair of the most wonderful, elegant, chic shoes you could wish for. But - the most wonderful part was the price - €80. Excellent! He did say that this was his very special, first time in Denia price and if any mates want similar the price might rise to €120.
Do you want some new shoes? I can pass on any enquiries.
