A mum claims she wants a friend to pay £325 to replace her daughter’s expensive shoes after they were marked with pen during a play-date.
Sarah Louise Bryan, 28, insists she was outraged when her three-year-old daughter came home from a pal’s house with damage to a pair of red, leather boots made in Italy. She claims to have fired off an invoice to friend Nicola Gibbs demanding she pay up or face further action. Sarah told The Sun: “If your child comes back with scratches on their body, you’d be like ‘what’s happened?’ It’s the same with her shoes. She’s not supposed to go outside with them.”
An email reproduced in The Sun reads: “So [name redacted] has just come home from her playdate with your child and I am disgusted to see her new Italian leather shoes are all scuffed and have a Sharpie Mark on them. Below is the bill for these replacing because they can not be fixed these are fine Italian leather! As a designer I do not want my child looking anything less than pristine. Bill for a replacement pair of Italian fur booties £325 to be paid by 01/02/2017 before I take this higher. Thank you, Sarah”
