Soooo, if I wanted some hastily-painted glass birds to hang from my oh-so-tasteful tree, I could choose six for

£12.99 from amazon

£15 from cox and cox


wait for it

£24.95 from pedlars

Hmmmmmmm, let me think. hmm

I particularly love the way the pedlars birds look faintly embarrassed to be there. grin

JenaiMarrHePlaysGuitar Wed 24-Nov-10 16:50:04

Could I also please mention £6.49 ?

moondog Wed 24-Nov-10 16:52:53

Fantastic but by no means the worst.
I am starting to think it is one huge joke.

I also keep on sending the catalogues back to them with stickers on saying

'RTS I will not be buying any of your overpriced tat, now or EVER so please remove me from your list.'

But..they keep on keeping on.

BelleDeChocChipCookieMonster Wed 24-Nov-10 16:53:30 dont' forget your nativity tea bags for £9.50!! shock

Unprune Wed 24-Nov-10 16:55:54

I am sitting here silently trying not to piss myself at the Nativity Tea Bags!!!!!!!!

JenaiMarrHePlaysGuitar Wed 24-Nov-10 16:56:36

Oh moondog that's brilliant.

I now know what to do with mine.

I seem to be on a Saw You Coming mailing list.

JenaiMarrHePlaysGuitar Wed 24-Nov-10 16:57:37

I have now seen the nativity teabags.

Good. Lord. shock

Howzabout a takeaway cup that looks like cardboard but is actually ceramic?

(Are these people 'on drugs'?)

BellaBearisWideAwake Wed 24-Nov-10 16:58:03

I think the Angel Gabriel is Madonna

BellaBearisWideAwake Wed 24-Nov-10 16:59:15

And the King at the back looks like someone as well, but I can't quite work out who

BelleDeChocChipCookieMonster Wed 24-Nov-10 16:59:31

ROFL!! You can get some scented ones from M&S for a few pounds.

WowOoo Wed 24-Nov-10 17:00:34

grin That takeaway cup could be so useful. Not.

Am sure they MUST smoke a lot of dodgy stuff and are laughing their heads off at people who actually buy from them.

mustdash Wed 24-Nov-10 17:01:11

I'd unsubscribed from their mailing list, but now realise I must have those tea bags. Sensational. shock

ChippyMinton Wed 24-Nov-10 17:01:12

The teabags! <wipes eyes> Perfect gift for the DC's teachers (church school).

Unprune Wed 24-Nov-10 17:03:00

Right. That's it. I'm off to live in a cave. Anyone who needs to spend a tenner on 12 farking novelty bin bags headed straight for landfill can just fuck right off.

SoMuchToBits Wed 24-Nov-10 17:03:18

Pmsl at those teabags! Perhaps I should buy some for Norman the Foreman for Christmas.... hmm

ChippyMinton Wed 24-Nov-10 17:04:39

Actually they would lovely on my front-door wreath or hanging from the tree.
Bet the ink comes off in the hot water - ugh.

MilaMae Wed 24-Nov-10 17:08:24

Unprune I'm presuming you're referring to the Christmas pudding bin bagsconfused. We really need a [why] emoticon,purely for Pedlars threads surely.

Do so love a Pedlars thread,every thread brings new and different ways for me to marvel at how people literally burn(or in this case bin)money.

Unprune Wed 24-Nov-10 17:14:50

I remember the last Pedlars thread where someone said they had a friend who had a cupcake-bunting business that wasn't doing so well, so she whopped 50% onto the prices and started raking it in grin

AbsofCroissant Wed 24-Nov-10 17:21:20

They don't just have a Holy Birth Par-Tea (their words, not mine). You can also have an Afternoon ParTea and a Christmas ParTea

<<contemplates whether or not they're going to come up with Jesus tea bags for Easter, or would that be too much?>>

I love Peddlars!

AbsofCroissant Wed 24-Nov-10 17:22:08

Ninety Five Pounds

shock shock shock shock shock shock shock

AbsofCroissant Wed 24-Nov-10 17:22:34

And they don't even throw in the batteries for free.

MilaMae Wed 24-Nov-10 17:34:37

They've surely misplaced a decimal point on that one,come on shock

A wooden torch for £95!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

VivaLeBeaver Wed 24-Nov-10 17:40:00

Have they sold that spanner yet?

How about an anglepoise lamp for £425.


My mum had a typewrite just like this, she took it down the tip a few years ago.


AbsofCroissant Wed 24-Nov-10 17:44:37

This is still my favourite, partly because caroline someone came onto the first shock Pedlars thread and told us that "it's an alternative fruit basket, you cave-dwelling neanderthals". Best. Thread. Ever.
