Personally I was THRILLED with my big find! I actually went to a shop I’ve never been to on the island- Underground Broadworks located in the Shop at Tybee Oaks- right by Huckapoos and close to SeaSide Sisters. Jim Stephens is a surfer/ custom surfboard builder and good ole Tybee character who has a shop where he not only sells surfing “stuff” but also creates and builds surf boards for people all over the world. He has the 4 foot rule – if the surf is 4 feet or higher, he hangs a sign on the door and heads out to surf the waters of Tybee.
Visit Jim’s shop next visit to Tybee and in the meantime, visit his website. http://www.undergroundboardworks.com/
My big find was 2 pair of Sanuks. These are not shoes but sandals that look like shoes! Mary Elizabeth Canty has been wearing them for a year or so, she found them in a surf shop in Ft Lauderdale. I tried to find them when I was in California, but they were always sold out. Jim was having a huge one day sale- $15 per pair when they are normally $48 a pair! I bought two pairs and will be wearing them all spring and summer long. Super comfy, very cool ( hey they are worn by surfers all over the world) and best of all- great price! Visit their website as well because it’s great fun http://www.sanuk.com
Great to meet you Jim, looking forward to visiting your shop on a regular basis!
The pictures show me wearing my new Sanuks. The second picture is to show off not only the shoes/ sandals, but also to show daughter Katie that no, my pants really are long enough. ( I’ve had enough lectures on wearing “mom jeans” that are not only too high waisted but too short! No Longer- I now buy Lucky Brand jeans- but more on that topic another blog!)
