Edward Green Sale

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

 

Long time reader, first time poster.

 

Just letting you guys know there is a factory sale in Northampton with 20% marked prices next week, 10th Nov.  See here: http://www.edwardgreen.com/index.php?option=news_full&news_id=131

 

I am thinking of going. Need a new pair of shoes.

 

Cheers

Don't worry, all the good stuff will be claimed by that eBay turd who marks up the prices on EG seconds to the likes of EG Top Drawers.

So you think I should get there early?

If you want slight seconds and seconds, then it would be worth going

If not, just wait for the post x-mas sale at the Jermyn Street store

I remember being the second person through the door into one of these events and he was already there (and he wasn't the one stood in front of me) with about twenty pairs of shoes.

That sale was a lot different than the one planned. Picked up many EGs for £100 I gather...

As I was simply looking at what appeared to be shoes on a rack, in my size a pair of Belgravia loafers for £90(!), I was told by him to get off the shoes as they were his, only then did I realise that the entire rack were his purchases. Aside from this repulsive chap, the good part was just meeting the staff and seeing what goes on behind the scenes. It didn't look as if too many shoes were being purchased all round, and many pairs were still available when I left after roughly forty five minutes.

It reminds me now - I had a belter of a hangover and probably for the most part was still drunk when I got the train to Northampton from London around 7AM on the Saturday morning. Severely worse for wear I was propped up in an office chair and fed aspirin by the great female staff! Oh youth...

I think the spiv needs a punch in the nuts.
