Shoes with Soul/Rebuild Flipflops

After 10yrs. of business my shop burned down the morning of Monday, January 5, 2015.  The fire resulted in total loss of my building including contents over $50,000.00 worth of damage, hair and nail supplies, work stations, products etc. as well as the two buildings adjacent to mine.  Almost the entire block we are on is gone.
However, I am not discouraged by these events.  No lives were lost and no injuries were had.  My spirits remain high and I feel very blessed for the things we do have.

Hello everyone, I'm Tanya Sanchez Scott, owner of Flipflops Salon & Gifts located at 121 S. Broadway, Walters, Oklahoma.  I have a very supportive husband Sean Scott, we have 4 children of our own and serve as foster parents to another 4 children.

Flipflops started out as a nail and hair salon.  My goal has always been to start selling flip flops and shoes in my shop, Walters is a very small community.  Due to this, we have to go to a different town to be able to buy good quality shoes.  Last July I was able to begin selling flip flops and purses working towards my goal of purchasing shoes for the shop.  My shop has always been my passion, it is where I raised my kids.  It is very important to me for our children to understand work ethic, and to pick up the pieces and continue on.  I have met some of the most wonderful people in my life at my shop.  I live in one of the most supportive, understanding communities there is.

Rebuilding is going to be a long process, we are wanting to buy the 2 other lots next to mine and build a big enough building so that we can provide rental space for potential other businesses.  To rebuild it is going to cost over $100,000.00.  My business is on main street and I can't wait to be able to fill the empty space that is there and continue to provide service to my community.

May God Bless everyone for their kind words, prayers and donations.
