Weird how we get coincidences with gumboot customers
It's so strange how on some days everybody wants the same colour wellies. Or suddenly everyone has the same large or small feet. It's as if the worlds gumboot buyers get together and agree that everyone with big feet will buy today. My husband tells me that this is because chaos causes clusters but I think there is something more going on. Some days we get a whole lot of Sarah's buying wellies and the next day a bunch of guys called Colin buying them for their wives. What is that all about? One time we had the exact same name twice in one day! Another time we had two men by the same first name buying wellies as gifts for their wives and both sales were complicated by returns due to both men getting the size wrong and then we go for twelve months without that same scenario happening again. It's just part of the crazy fun of selling these wonderful gumboots and it keeps us very amused when these unexpected alignments of the stars happen. Anyway lots of orders coming through this winter so you should see plenty of fashionable ladies in lovely colourful Barbour wellies walking around your community. Let us know when you see them out and about as we love to hear how women are wearing them.
