NAPIER MAIL, DECEMBER 14, 2011
Florist Gump in Napier has added a new product to
their range of flowers, giftware and Christmas hampers
-- awesome shoes!
These Onesole shoes have interchangeable tops that fit every sole
with just a couple of snaps, which means you can attach whatever
colour or pattern you want.
One sole, a thousand shoes? Simply snap different uppers to one set
This new concept allows you to buy one or more stylish soles, and
one or several "designer tops" to suit your taste, mood or occasion.
Once you've chosen the type of sole -- wedge, clog, heel or sandal
style -- then it's simply a matter of selecting a top. These quick-
change snap-ons come in a wide variety of fabrics; from traditional
and contemporary through to creative and funky.
"All soles come with a black comfy top, and the soft-step insole creates
a cushion for the foot," says florist owner, Lynette Lander.
Designed and created by Quick Change Artists, Onesole shoes
are versatile, fun, economical and easy for travel, as they use less
"You can virtually have a wardrobe full of different shoes, at a much
lower overall cost, with a couple of soles and a variety of tops -- which
means you can match any outfit and any occasion, with great comfort
and without the major expense of buying more soles over again."
Florist Gump is the exclusive Hawke's Bay stockist of Onesole shoes,
so call in and check them out. The screen-printed images on these
tops are stunning, as are the ankle-strap dream catchers, blue jeans
pockets, gladiators, buckle belts and diamond crystals.

Market bound: Jan Molenaar's house will go up for sale next year after being seized by the Crown. Its rateable
value as of August was $260,000.
History may hinder
sale of killer's house
The house at the centre of the
Napier siege will go up for sale
next year, but attracting a buyer
may be difficult.
An order for the Chaucer Rd
house to be transferred to the
Crown was sealed at the end of
November, and it is now in the
hands of the Insolvency and
Criminal proceeds manager
Guy Sayers said the property
was likely to be put on the mar-
ket next year.
Its latest valuation was
$215,000, but its rateable value
as of August was $260,000.
The house was owned by Jan
Molenaar, who shot dead a
police officer and injured two
others and a civilian in May
2009. A three-day siege ensued,
culminating in Molenaar taking
his own life.
Earlier this year a judge ruled
that the property be seized by
the Crown. It was estimated
that Molenaar and his partner,
Delwyn Keefe, would have
earned $650,000 from cannabis
deals in the five years before the
Havelock North-based valuer
Ton Remmerswaal said the
property would be difficult to
When the market s strong,
people overlook negative details
such as a murder or some other
blight such as drug use, both
of which apply to this property.
People will vote with their feet.
Mr Remmerswaal, who has 27
years experience, said someone
might buy it as an investment
but finding a tenant could be dif-
ficult, given the property s
The application for forfeiture
of the property was made by
the solicitor-general, who was
seeking forfeiture of the house
and cash after Keefe was
convicted in 2009 of selling
cannabis with Molenaar in
the five years preceding the
siege. -- Fairfax NZ
