Jelly Shoes Yeah I hated the brown plastic sandals which I had to wear in 1966, they seemed to rub to blister state every time I wore them but I still had to despite my complaints. Who would have thought that in 1978 I would be scouring the shops all over my county to try and find them. At that time I commanded a small wage and spent most of it on clothes/makeup but living in such a small town posed many problems regarding access to fashion items. We managed tho' as we started to make our own clothes. We were the envy of a growing following. It didn't bloom to anything unfortunately but that's another story.
