Cheap Buys

Aloha Everyone,

While J.J. was choosing mangosteen fruits to purchase, a vendor adjacent to our regular fruit seller called out if I would be interested in high-quality socks. 3 pairs for 100 peso or US $1.82 (61 cents per pair). Even if they self-destruct after the first wash, I will be providing someone with business. Over three separate visits, I purchased more pairs.

Puma is a German multinational corporation. Headquartered in Bavaria, Germany, they design and manufacture athletic and casual footwear, apparel and accessories. The pair with the Puma logo as well as others have no name of the manufacturer, no instructions on washing. One of them had a paper sticker stamped with “Made in China”

I am pleased to write that all of these socks survived several machine washing and dryer cycles with no visible negative effects. They were truly good cheap buys.

Aloha -- Cathi
