BREAKING NEWS: You all need to buy Douglas (roman) sandals right now

If you love roman sandals – the good quality last-forever and made in New Zealand kind then you need to act now.

I just spoke to the guy from Douglas Sandals (after a text from Helen to say they’re closing down) and he said that they’re not manufacturing at the moment (but still have stock) and the business is for sale.

The best thing you can do to help his business is stock up on roman sandals. For you, for your Christmas presents, for your kids…

It’s hard making quality goods in New Zealand when you’re competing with China and if you don’t buy local then businesses close. Remember ages ago when we did the huge roman sandal order? (The roman sandals guy remembered).

You can buy sandals online here.

It’s a pretty simple message – stock up now on the colours and patterns you love; you’ll help a New Zealand business and also guarantee excellent summer footwear for years to come.

      Worse! I’ve looked on the site and there’s none of my favourites in size 8 – hopefully sandals man answers my email quickly. It’s the worst thing for people with big feet.

  6. This is the perfect website for anyone who hopes to find out about this topic.
    You know so much its almost tough to argue with
    you (not that I actually would want to…HaHa). You certainly put a
    brand new spin on a subject which has been discussed
    for decades. Excellent stuff, just wonderful!

    Excellent blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices
    out there that I’m completely confused .. Any suggestions?
    Appreciate it!
