AMSTERDAM – New shoes washed up on Terschelling three weeks ago and salvaged by beach combers have been rinsed and are on sale on the Internet.

More than 100 pairs (sizes 36-42) are being offered for just EUR 7.50 a pair by a dealer in Cocksdorp on the neighbouring Wadden island of Texel.

The islanders of Terschelling apparently have all they can use, so the surplus has been offloaded.

On 10 February 58 containers from the freight ship P&O Mondriaan were washed overboard. Although 46 of them sank without trace, 12 washed up on the island, filled with new shoes, textiles, suitcases and toys.
