Don't get me wrong, it's a great place to connect with old friends and new friends a like. a great place to share recipes and pictures. And a great place to find deals on boots!
Oh wait, what? Boots? Yes, boots. This past weekend I was on facebook, and a group that I'm a member of Farm Hats had a post about a Durango Boots discount. I read through the post and it said that if you ordered with the code FFACHAPTER you got a pair of FFA Durango Boots for $49. I thought, that seems to good to be true.
So I went on to the website and it showed that they were $149 (or if mens $152 or something like that). I went ahead and added a pair to my cart, plugged in the discount code and bam... $49 pair of FFA Durango boots. No tax and you could get free shipping for $2 for FedEx shipping. I showed it to the hubs and also shared it on my facebook page for others to benefit from.
Then that night hubby and I decided (and I use hubby and I loosely, he did it ;) I just benefitted from it) to order us each a pair. One... the website said $2 was donated to the FFA (I'd have liked a little more but whatever) and two, you can't beat a pair of $49 pair of boots.
They arrived yesterday. I was sooooo happy! Oh and get this... The box said they donate $5 per pair of boot to the FFA. Even better!!
I may be making a wrong assumption but I assume the discount works this week because it is FFA Week. But anyway I just had to share about my great find! Oh and here are some tips for keeping boots in tip top condition!
- Wipe them off - Just use a towel, damp it if you must and wipe them down, especially after heavy use. This allows the leather to breathe and stay flexible.
- Let dry for 24 hours - Remember your feet sweat. When moisture from your feet hasn't had a chance to dry, this allows the smellage (I made that word up). Just let them air dry, drying with heat may cause the leather to crack. No bueno! :)
- Condition your boots - This is what I'm worst about... dun dun dun. Leather, just like your skin, dries out. Keeping them oiled with leather conditioner allows the boots to stay supple and soft.
