I am offering a reward for information directly leading to the proof of the current existence and whereabouts of either the yellow felt Ruby Slippers or the bugle bead shoes. Please keep in mind that I am essentially the leading replicator of slippers in the world at this point, and in addition to my ability to create the most convincing replicas, I have also had most of the components of the shoes custom made to match the originals - meaning I can spot a fake pair from a mile away. If you are going to try to forge a pair to trick me, you really have your work cut out for you.
If the information you provide to me results in me locating either pair of shoes, or you submit multiple photos of the shoes with provenance that I am able to verify, I will happily arrange payment of the current reward amount.
Contact me for more information.
