Mion Sandals Update

Wednesday, September 1st, 2010

I own a pair of Mion sandals and they’re the best sandals I’ve ever owned but my insoles are starting to breakdown. I’ve been trying to track them down for awhile to get replacement insoles because the shoes are still in awesome shape.

In my research, I found out that Mion were a Timberland Line.  In contacting Timberland, here’s the answer I got about replacements.

“Thank you for your interest in Timberland products.  Unfortunately, the style you have requested has been discontinued and we have no stock or parts in our warehouses.  It is not likely that you will find that style at this time since the Mion company closed years ago and was not purchased by anyone else.”

“I did a search and the Mion brand are still being sold on Ebay.”

“You can also use the Stores Locator on the website to find Timberland Stores and Authorized Timberland Retailers in your area.”

So, that’s that! If anyone knows where I can get insole replacements for my Mion’s, size 12 or 13, please drop me a line.

Cabinet Hardware Needed

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

My wife, Amy, and I were shopping on the Internet last night for some new cabinet handles for the kitchen cabinets and came across a website named USKnobs. We decided we needed a change from the same old stuff that Home Depot offers plus I’m not too happy with them for the way they are treating my credit card. Anyway, USKnobs had a great selection of knobs for us to choose from. We were overwhelmed with the handle variety. They had everything from basic plain handles to squiggly line handles to handles with leaves and stuff on them. We were quite pleased.

We ended up buying some pretty cool handles that had an “s” shape to them. Plus, their prices were really good.
