Hi all.

This beautiful whale has been in our family for the last 12 years holding our dress up collection. Our dress ups no longer fit in the whale anymore and we're wondering if anyone would like it?

It is very well loved and a little broken in a few places, it's biggish but very light and easy to move around.

Please test Mel on 0404 043 010.

We bought these KEEN sandals for Bronte last Christmas and she has refused to wear them all year! We managed to convince her to wear them a handful of times but they are almost brand new.

We paid $100.00 and would like $30.00 for them.

They are size US 1, UK 13 and EU 32/33. They fit Bronte when she was 5 and 6.

Very well made and excellent for all types of adventuring.

She wore these sandals a little more often but is now refusing to wear them. I can't remember how much we paid for them but would like $10.00 for them.

They are New Zealand sandals and I'm not sure if they are still making sandals. But they are also very well made and super comfortable, I have a couple of adult pairs.

They are a kids size 12.

Please text Mel on 0404 043 010 if you would like either of both of them.
