Boots?


Today I went to Target to buy Steven some sandals because I noticed his were on the small side. To my surprise, they only had a couple pairs left and they were the wrong size, so I asked an employee if they would be getting some more. He said, "No, we're actually getting boots in now for winter." I want to know who out there buys boots before summer has even officially begun? Winter is the farthest thing from my mind right now. Wouldn't it be nice if the stores had sandals on the shelves in the summer and boots on the shelves in the fall and winter? I did find a pair on clearance at Dick's, so I did find some. Good thing I looked today...tomorrow may have been too late!

What, no sandals at Target? That's just crazy.

If you'll just drive down to Florida, you can find summer clothes year round.

I new your summers didn't last long but that is redickolus!

Martha said...

Crazy thing is we won't need boots until at least Novemeber and it's doubtful we'll need them then.

Rachel said...

The crazy thing is that the week after Christmas, the sandals and bathing suits will be out.
gmj- The weather will be pretty warm here through September. I got married on Oct. 26th and it was in the 70's, so we can even have some warm days left in October. No boots will be needed until December. This year it was almost February before we needed them, but that was very unusual.

Your weather is very simular to ours, you get colder because of the lake effect I think.

Rachel said...

If I remember right I think you get summer about a month before us.

Priscilla said...

That is a little extreme!

Rachel said...

What is a little extreme, their summer starting a month before ours?

martha said...

The boots being in the stores already is extreme.

We started out with a big bang for summer, but it has sorta stalled in the high 70's. Not so good for the 'mato plants. Tracy lives south of here quite aways and it is much warmer there.

Just please tell me they don't have Christmas stuff out yet.

T said...

oh yah we went to get sandles too and there were all the 50%off sales and so I asked and yup...... getting the fall stuff in.

Tracy said...

That's really crazy! Summer is just starting up in your neck of the woods, isn't it?

Rachel said...

Tracy- We've had warm weather since at least the middle of May, but it will be summer like into September. Boots are not something we will need until at least the end of November or December.
