This time last week, I was in Cowbridge, Glamorgan, judging a fantastic cookery/craft competition organised by the WI. Those “in the know” rate Cowbridge highly for a great range of individual shops and a lovely friendly atmosphere and there was one shop in particular which we remembered from last time – Jon Ian, whose shop window had displayed the most gorgeous shoes, most admittedly outside my price bracket!
Last week, though, the sight of these shoes in their window drew me inside to try them on. Finding them to be the most comfortable, butter-soft leather, I was sold – or rather they were! Since then, I’ve worn them almost every day and rather wished I’d bought a pair in black, too.
This morning, I rang to ask if they still had them. Sadly not…but they telephoned their Cardiff store immediately and within ten minutes I had a call to say they would be in the post to me.
Isn’t that great service?
