WINTER SALES in Paris

Winter sales in Paris. Miss Doodle needs a new pair of shoes. She doesn't like shopping during sales period, that is like jumping into a very crowded swimmingpool with stale water..... but she needs these shoes...

That's a delightful view of the reality of sales shopping. I avoid sales unless they are on the Internet!

Not sure if Miss D will be able to bend down to try on the shoes in that crowd. I'm with here, I rarely go to sales events. However, there is that dilema of wanting/needing shoes and not wanting to pay full price. Good luck, Miss D.

Absolutely hilarious! Wonderful!

Oh good grief! I think I would hasten to go barefoot that face those daunting crowds. I HATE crowded places. Good luck Ms. Doodle.

oh my.. what a detailed picture of the very crowded sales. Poor MIss Doodle, how did she manage to find some shoes in that crowd? I too hate crowds. The make me very nervous.

Miss Doodle, Paris Sales are tough...here in the US you can find them all the time at one place or another. In Paris, you have the joy of everyone having sales at only what 2 or 3 times a year. I hope you find those shoes you need...don't you think that is the worst when you HAVE to deal with it as opposed to wanting to deal with it?

I am sending you lots of energy to complete your search and deal with the masses.

Your secretary did a bang up job sharing just what it is like!

Dear Miss Doodle ~ hope you found some snappy shoes.

I shop online.

What an amazing detailed drawing. Do you this very quickly or is it a slow process? I am so impressed I can FEEL the movement and the stress of the sale event!!!

Mim said...

i have been in department stores in paris: i was reprimanded for not knowing to ask for a purse rather than take it off the shelf. now i know the rules!

what shoes did you choose? inquiring minds want to know...
