Personal Affairs

Hello sir, I’m calling about your ad on Le Bon Coin concerning the horse-riding boots. Are they still available?’
‘Yes, they are.’
‘Great. Where are they from?’

‘An Italian shoemaker.’
‘Are they new or used?’
‘I’ve hardly ever worn them. I got the wrong size. Are you a size 41?’
‘Well, I’m calling you for a rather special reason. I’m a photographer preparing a show about unusual items people sell on Le Bon Coin. Would it be possible to meet you and photograph your boots?’
