So I keep reading and hearing and seeing about clogs. You know, the kinda cute, slip on footwear? My pals who stand on their feet all day swear on their comfort and I know women who would never cheat on their Dansko brand clogs.
Somehow I've never owned a pair. Probably because of my high insteps. Anyhoo. I got thyself to Goodwill the other day and found two pairs that were kind of cute and both seemed to fit my Flintstone/Hobbit feet. One was oh, I don't know, what brand, but a fairly common, middle of the line, one.
the other that I bought...
was a European brand.
It did not occur to me that this brand was actually Abba.
You know, like Dancing Queen Abba?
But they are.
Searching all over the web brought me a couple facts:
1. These are extremely difficult to find.
2. A pair sold on Ebay a couple years ago for $900.
Now, I don't have the box (which is quite OBVIOUSLY Abba, complete with photos) but the clogs themselves are in amazing shape.
I wore them once for a quick trip to the grocery store.
They hurt like heck. It seemed as though they have tiny men with tiny spears jumping up and down on my instep.
So if you want em, I'll make ya a deal and sell em to you for half of what they're worth. $450.
That's a profit for me of $445.01
And you thought I couldn't be a picker! HA! Beat that if you can!
