Might not be many places now but loads of stores have reduced a NOOK ereader to £29 - just brought mine from Currys today. But Argos, Sainsburys and Asda have been selling them at that price. Going to put it away for DD1 for Christmas.

I must confess that I actually started for Christmas 2013 on 15th December when I brought two majorly reduced advent calendars.

OvO Wed 08-May-13 15:08:46

I bought one of those for Christmas too, scrappy. Have ordered a cd thingy with almost 2000 ebooks from eBay to load onto it for my DS3. Even if there's loads of rubbish I'm sure there'll be a few gems and it was only 99p!

I like it so much I bought a nook for me. I already have a kindle. blush

ELC Chomposaurus Game

ELC Chomposaurus Game half price - from £12 to £6.00 with free delivery.

Moshi Monsters Talking Wurley

From £14.99 to £5.84, free delivery.

BoffinMum Thu 06-Jun-13 10:05:54

My so called pashminas arrived. Do take them out of the packet and check them carefully if you have bought them. They were shocking. Holes, stains, and one packed wet so still slightly damp and reeking of mould. They are not made from pashmina wool - manufacturer claims they are 100% viscose which is easy to overlook on the site - in the event mine were a mix of even cheaper fibres and not even viscose. Now they are demanding I have to pay return postage even though they are damaged. Moral? If something sounds to good to be true it probably is. I've reported this to Amazon but they said they couldn't help as they were sold by a company called Kuldip UK. Last time I buy from Amazon Marketplace.

fuzzpig Thu 06-Jun-13 14:38:14

Oh no boffin, how annoying angry

Sleepyfergus Thu 06-Jun-13 19:37:17

Oh no Boffin. I have 3 on their way to me as I type.....hmm

Prob not worth the postage to send them back, but at least we can leave negative feedback <clutching straws>

The pashmina reviews are VERY varied.
I think it's the luck of the draw by the looks of things.
Maybe some colours are better than others /

starjules Thu 06-Jun-13 22:12:53

I only ordered one Pashmina and for the price its great. After reading the reviews I thought it would be awful so was pleasantly surprised.

Sleepyfergus Fri 07-Jun-13 19:33:44

Well my pashminas arrived and the navy and pale yellow were okay. The coral one was a very insipid colour and had a wee mark on them. I chucked the navy and coral one in the wash with some dark towels and the coral one came out with dark dye on it, I guess from the navy one. So I just binned it as it was the least nice one and i don't think the colour was true to the photo on Amazon anyway. The navy one is drying in the sun and looks fab. I'm going to wash the pale yellow one and hopefully it'll be okay. It's a lovely colour.

They come with quite sticky 'made in India, 100% viscose' labels. They come off but pull a little bit at the threads, but a wash seems to 'close' these back up.

They seem soft enough and didn't smell too bad, but a wash should soften them up and neutralise any odour.

So I guess it can be a bit hit or miss. But for the price if a bus fare, it's worth the gamble.

BoffinMum Fri 07-Jun-13 22:02:42

I think given the fact that about 25% of their stuff is crap from the reviews, and they don't give refunds, they are pulling a fast one.

Sleepyfergus Fri 07-Jun-13 22:56:01

Oh I agree Boffin, and I dislike it intensely. I'm sorry yours were rubbish, and I'm thankful that at least one of mine (still to wash the yellow one!) is okay. It's disgraceful they don't do refunds or acknowledge people complaints - Amazon should take a firmer stance with them if they are using Amazons website to peddle their wares.

fuzzpig Sat 08-Jun-13 08:09:47

Yes it is easy to think that Amazon is by nature safer than eBay, but with the marketplace it's not sad

DH and I have been burned a couple of times buying online, I am now really paranoid careful about checking reviews/feedback etc.

But then how did this company (assuming I'm looking at the correct link above) get over 200 reviews - maybe they were selling more expensive ones (as the RRP is nearly a tenner) to get loads of decent reviews and then switched to crappy ones and put the price down? Ugh. Bastards.

BoffinMum Sat 08-Jun-13 08:54:12

Well I will pursue this for the greater good I think, as I think they are crooks. Small Claims Court next stop.

fuzzpig Sun 09-Jun-13 12:30:08

got an email for free delivery on book people site - ends tonight. code 99DEL

(I had been increasing my basket to get the £25 minimum for free delivery, which I could not really justify, so I might just get a couple of bits instead as it's DD's birthday soon...)

BoffinMum Sun 09-Jun-13 21:51:29

Hohoho, Amazon gave me a full refund as part of their A-Z guarantee scheme, and they are investigating the nasty scarf people (who incidentally had also been sending me unpleasant and confrontational emails in the meantime). They were really good about it all, actually.

fuzzpig Sun 09-Jun-13 21:58:31

olivo Sun 16-Jun-13 20:12:44

Fuzz pig- how old is your DD please? Think mine might like one!

fuzzpig Sun 16-Jun-13 22:10:44

She will be turning 6. She didn't ask for one but she was given some mini lalaloopsies at Xmas via the MN appeal and loved them so I think it's a safe bet and worth it for £15 I reckon!

I was surprised when it arrived that it is seems to be a hard plastic rather than floppy/rag doll although the costume is fabric (we got the firefighter one - Ember Flicker Flame) but I think she will be happy.

olivo Mon 17-Jun-13 19:07:46

Thanks! DD is turning 4, she has played loads with her mini ones for the past 6 months. I remember picking one up, they are light. Will order the one from amazon, thanks!

ClaraBean Thu 20-Jun-13 21:07:27

Loads of Schleich figures are dirt cheap on Amazon at the moment, properly cheap with free postage. Some individual figures are around £1.80, and the big Fighter Elephant set is £11 reduced from over £40.
I have only looked at the Fantasy figures as dd and ds love the fairies and mythical beasts, so not sure if there are more reduced too. DD and DS both have birthdays in August, and ds really wanted the Fighter Elephant, so I am sooo pleased to get it for £11!
Some of the individual figures are so cheap at the moment - east to hide away fro Christmas!

Yes, I have a spreadsheet blush. But I love it! grin

buildingmycorestrength Wed 26-Jun-13 07:39:48

I have had spreadsheets for Christmas presents for several years now...I just don't normally fill them in in June.

I am SO PROUD of myself. I am one of THOSE people now. One of those people who can say airily, "Oh, I did mine ages ago.' in mid November (husband's birthday...normally I start planning Christmas after that).

fuzzpig Wed 26-Jun-13 08:23:45

I just keep a list on the Notes section of my phone. We have a tiny family so there's not many people to keep track of - basically just DCs/DSCs and DH, plus a few grandparents.

Not sure if it's the same as Lauren's but there's an app called No More Socks which I think does the same thing. HTH

Actually, forget my last post - No More Socks doesn't seem to work on the iPad.

I'm currently using Quick Christmas List app and really like it.

Has anyone made homemade fruit vodka (or gin)? I'm going to do blackberry vodka for presents. I'm wondering if these bottles will be suitable?

johnworf they are fab, ive been looking out for some nice bottles and some on Amazom are about a fiver just for 1 bottle, Thanks grin

I also found these that hold up to 1 litre that are also quite cheap. All I'm wondering is how you sterilise. I normally put jam jars in the oven for 5 minutes but these have rubber stoppers and I'm worried they'd perish if I heat them up.

I also have a Pinterest Christmas inspiration board and a making stuff for gifts board.

Tescos have the big chocolate tins for £5 in stock now. I remember last year there was a shortage of celebrations so best stock up now before the prices increase.
