Reclaimed in the name of friendship

A couple weeks ago, I popped into a Goodwill that is just down the street from us.
I spotted (you'll pick up on the pun in a bit) a pair of girls booties that looked very familiar.

I was pretty sure they had belonged to my friend's daughter because I remember her wearing them and I always thought they were super cute!
My friend and her family also live right down the road from this same Goodwill.
I didn't buy them then.
I mentioned them to my friend later and she said she had just donated them!

Since I am a Goodwill addict and buying other people's junk seems to be my hobby, it wasn't long before I dropped by again.
I thougt I would just glance and see if the booties were still there and guess what?
They were. :)
Of course I bought them that time.

As you can see, they were pretty well worn.
But I had an idea in mind.

 Sharpie to the rescue!

 After some scribbling here and there...

....they looked pretty darn good.
It'll be a couple years before my girls can wear them but it'll be fun to pull them out.


  1. The same Goodwill addict will leave a comment here!) A nice way to get rid of shabbiness and restore the boots! I'll try out the same strategy next time I pick up something lovely there!
