My husband was thrilled to find extra-wide Clarks boots at Goodwill, especially since they showed so little wear.
Except for one flaw, which he didn't discover until later. The stitching at the laces had come undone.
Now, my husband enjoys working on his shoes. He was ready to tackle the job himself until I pointed out our lack of heavy duty thread and needles.
We reluctantly phoned the shoe repair shop, located in the pricey shopping area nearby. One week and $6.50 later, the boots are ready to wear.
And now I have another frugal resource in my arsenal!
