It’s no secret that I can’t resist a bargain, so this time of year, when the summer sales kick in, is prime shopping time. Only thing is, many so-called sales aren’t actually that great. Shops knock a few quid off here and there, and that’s it.
So, I was very excited to see one of my favourite websites, Hunkydoryhome.co.uk, have gone a little bit crazy with their sale. It’s not a huge sale, granted, but there are some lovely things at rock bottom prices, and it’s well worth a look, particularly if you’re one of those people who likes to stock up on Christmas pressies early.
My top picks? The beautiful ceramic sandcastle-shaped bowls, above, ideal for anything from food to pens, now £7.50 each (was £19.95); the on-trend green parquet cushion, now £11.25 (was £28); the cute Night Owl tea towel, now £3.74 (was £10) and the stylish retro Skandi Amanda sugar bowl – perfect for storing earrings or nicknacks if you’re not a sugar fan – now £5.25 (was £14.50).
If you’re quick, you could even grab some goodies designed by Gillian Kyle (see previous post) – for example, a set of four Tunnock’s Teacakes coasters is now just £4.13 (was £12.75).
Race you to the checkout!
