I found my gold – a pair of gold Havaianas flipflops – find at the ABS-CBN Havaianas Sale held there in late October. Everything, even new designs, was on 40% off. So imagine the joy the sale brought to Hava-gogos!
I got this pair of gold Havaianas flipflops for only Php770 or about USD16.70!
These high heel flipflops usually go for P1300 plus! So loving this. I also got several pairs for my kids, nephews and neices.
The pop up shop was so packed, they had to let people in by batches. The entrance lines got so long, but nobody seemed to mind. The blaring “40% off” sign did wonders in extending people’s patience.
At the cashier, though, a catfight almost broke out as Tentay – yes, Tentay, the regifter – insisted that she go ahead of the lady in front of her just because the lady seemed to have shopped for her whole clan! Tentay, being her sometimes-obnoxious self, was arguing with the lady that she was going to be late, yada yada yada… The lady’s pile of slippers will take all morning to pay, yada yada yada… The lady of course was outraged in a who-the-hell-do-you-think-you-are kind of way. Tentay was looking at me to rally behind her, but, no chance. I was in too good a mood. 😛 Besides, it was entertaining to watch them. I’m pretty sure everyone in the line thought so too.
Anyway, I did not mean to share that story here… But I just suddenly remembered it while writing this post. hehehe.
