In 2009, while I was on vacation, my children were desperate for some fishing nets. After looking at one store after another - I was just about to give up when I decided to check the last shop. I wandered in, and just like the previous five stores before, there wasn't one single fishing rod. Just as I was about to walk out, I noticed these beautiful jeweled sandals right at the back. Like any good mother - I instantly forgot about the fishing rods and headed to check the shoes out! I had never heard of Grandco Sandals, but I loved all the jewels and beads on these cute sandals. I had to purchase a pair! I chose ones with colorful marble stones knowing they would match just about any of my summer outfits. The next day we were heading out on an all-day adventure with our children. I wore my new beaded sandals – wondering if I would regret it halfway through the day! I was stunned after wearing them all day; they felt as comfortable as when I first put them on that morning! Finally, I had found a jeweled sandal range that are: Affordable ComfortablComplimented my outfi Fashionable Didn't need to be broken in The very next day, I headed back to the store to purchase a few more pairs but was disappointed to find only one other style in my size. Once I got back home, friends commented on my beaded sandals and asked me where I had purchased them? When I looked for Grandco Sandal retailers, the only places I found these cute jeweled sandals were online with high shipping costs and rarely in my size. What is a girl to do? I decided there was space in the online world for someone to bring Grandco Sandals and other trendy accessories to fashionable ladies everywhere. The Accessory Barn was opening for business!
