    How do you do these Spoiler Warnings?

    On another matter of EG shoes - has anyone come across this seller?

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Edward-Gr..._Men_s_Shoes&hash=item43bb7aff9f#ht_523wt_722

    I remember he had about 40+ pairs of Edward Green shoes.
    Mostly in size 10 & 10.5 and they were all in used but prestine condition.
    Some pairs had not been touched at all.

    I just found out the ebay seller was contacted by the widow of the man that passed away
    and gave the whole at a fraction of the cost price....Nice work if you're size 10.

    Highlight the text/picture you want to "spoil", then click "spoiler" icon (all black) on top.

    Not sure if this is entirely true, he has bought a couple of pairs from my e-bay listing and re listed them at a higher price which is fine by me I have no problem with it but just feel if someone really wanted the same pair of shoes could have got it at a much lower price from me directly!

    Anyway, that is business and I wish him all the best.

    Speaking of uk10.5, there is a pair if mocha/dark oak galways at the factory store with some scratches at 40% off retail. About 500pounds. Not bad if you're from out of eu in which case you get additonal 10% vat.

    UK VAT 20% - so £416 GBP ($625 USD) is decent value.

    Scratches are located on the leather outsole. They appear to have been returned after a single wear. F width 82 last, iirc

    The highlight and dissapointment of my visit involved a burgundy shell brogue cap toe in size uk11, 202 last, for only 400 pounds. And then I noticed the width, B

    :(

    Wow, THAT is narrow... how hard was it to schedule the visit to the factory store? They only take appointments on Friday or Saturday right?

    10% of VAT? Has something changed recently?

    Namor, you have been lucky to find your size in a 82 F last , i have finally decided that the best last for me is to stick to the 202 . Did they have any 8.5 0r 8F in any boots?

    I got lucky mate. I just showed up at the door and was let in by one of the ladies who informed me the factory shop lady was tending another customer. Finally, after a 30 min wait in the eg office (felt like charlie waiting for wonka), Jill?? Showed me downstairs. It wasn't until later that she informed me that an appointment is necassary, and admittednthat had she been at the desk when I rang, she would have turned me away.

    While I was waiting on the second floor, I overheard the receptionist turn away another gentlemen stating that only one person can wait at a time.

    I'll def get an appointment on the next visit
