Several friends swear by Gumshoe, a locally-owned kids shoe and apparel store. They currently have a fabulous in-store sale (as opposed to online, since they have an active online presence as well).
Their "dot sale" began yesterday, through the end of January. You can get all kinds of great shoes HALF PRICE. They color-coded each shoe with a dot:
Yellow Dots = $15
Green Dots = $25
Pink Dots = $40
They have a huge inventory, since the shoe brands are also participating to sell down their inventory from the slow Fall season. According to the store, this means that instead of having 100 Umis left over, they have about 1,000 Umis to choose from. Instead of a handful of Kuurus, we have every Kuuru in every size. And the list goes on and on.
They're at 275 Primrose Road in Burlingame, (650) 342-2048
So check out Gumshoe in Burlingame and let me know what you scored!
