When QVC finds products that sell well, they pound them into the ground.  Everyone used to look forward to the occasional Dooney show as sort of a special treat.  Now that it's on almost daily, everyone groans and complaints about too much Dooney.  I don't even watch them anymore.


@Kachina624  Are you saying familiarity breeds contempt?


Maybe not contempt, but definitely boredom.

Re: CLARKS...THE DOONEY OF SHOES

If it's not Clark's shoes, it's Vionic (according to Previously Aired). No thanks! If I need a pair of shoes, I'll go to a local mall where there are a lot more choices and I can actually try them on. Clark's just isn't my style - nor is the host who usually sells shoes. I can find a better style for me, a good fit and a better price at B&M stores with other brands, and not have to pay $6.95 for trying them on and sending them back.

Re: CLARKS...THE DOONEY OF SHOES

I am a Clarks girl thru and thru-- I have many pairs that fit like a dream, some of them clogs--and I have worn a few out, but only after years of hard wear. And I don't buy them from the Q--I find great deals elsewhere for alot less $$ and usually free shipping. Never have had to return any of them as they fit me so well.  But I am tired of the many shows. But that is with most the items on the Q----

@Shanus  98% of my shoes are Clarks.  I do own a few Sketchers.  Clarks has changed in the last few years where some of the wide widths are not true wide and/or they are too long or short.  Years ago all I had to do was order my size with no problems.  Last year, I purchased 2 pair of Ugg boots on sale from Nordstrom so I won't need anymore boots for the snow.  The other upscale brands are for women that can spend that kind of money.  I am retired and it is not that important for me to have the latest style and spend $200 plus.  Oh, have you seen Frye?  THeir handbags prices are crazy and their shoes are just as bad.  I can't see too many women buying Frye.  Cat Tongue

@Shanus  Speaking of My Pillow, mine are not that great anymore.  I woke up with the worse neck pain in my life.  So much for Mike's promises.

@Katcat1  Don’t own those pillows, but most pillows are washable ( ck. tag if available). I’ve done this to mine and they come out of the dryer fluffed up twice the size like new.

Re: CLARKS...THE DOONEY OF SHOES

Just like Dooney & Bourke Clarks used to be well made.  Then they became mass produced and made in China.
