Spring break is over, and winter decided to put on a new layer of make-up. He was looking a bit haggard, but decided to refresh his complexion before leaving the party in style. One of my spring break adventures included the New Balance factory store in Skowhegan which had a 40% off sale (on the factory seconds).
This is the New Balance factory and, like with LLBean, much is still hand-made right here in the USA.
Unfortunately I came on the second day of the sale, rookie mistake, and the “middle of the road” sizes of the nice shoes were already gone. A lot of 6s and 11s in this blue beauty.
It is no surprise that plenty of people trek to Skowhegan for the sale. 40% off 39.98? Not bad, not bad. I could not really find any signs of ‘seconds’, the merchandise looked perfect.
Available in my size, but a bit too Florida colored for me.
I finally settled on these, they are amazing, the fresh foam model. Love.
Even more love for these cuties. The adorableness.
It was then off to Freeport which was quite deserted. I don’t think anyone comes to Maine for spring break, and even the Mainers are gone.
In the old days, maybe it was different.
Fell in love with the new flatbreads at Panera bread. Soooo good!
Repurposed an inexpensive bulky bag at Forever XXI as camera bag.
Only batted my eyelashes at this bag.
And now I try to be patient for spring to come, in the next weeks, months.
