Pound shops are dangerous places, when I say pound shops, I really mean anywhere were you can buy tat for a quid!
You enter for one item and come out with a bag of tat and with absolutely no idea how or why you bought it!
Some classic purchases from previous ventures, include:
A squeeky plastic chicken dog toy (destroyed and eaten in seconds),
A set 5 plastic pint pot glasses that split from top to bottom when the slightest pressure was applied, covering the holder(s) in the alcohol of their choice.
A tin opener that sits on our kitchen drawer having opened approximately 7 tins before becoming too blunt to continue.
A whole set of 40w light bulbs that turned out to be 1 light bulb, as the other 3 popped as soon as inserted.
A complete set of sticky back hooks that all work fine, as long as you hang nothing on them that is even remotely approaching the weight of a gnats eyebrow.
A set of candle holders that you are unable to move without oven mits
A pair of Scandinavian patterned plastic tumblers (why oh why?)
A set of 3 Christmas Baubles that seem to be made of brittle highly coloured glittery rice paper! (they didn’t see Christmas day!)
And finally, a small plastic Christmas Robin, complete with hat and coat!
I know we have all been there and done it, but my point is, there is another option.

If everyone who had visited and read these posts, saved on trips to land fill sites with all the tat they have inexplicably bought and actually donated a single pound towards these three amazing charities, the results would be amazing.
