From Robotgate to Vertbaudetgate, its the Christmas bargain thread(1000 Posts)
girlwiththeyellowhats do we have any news yet? <impatient>
Fifth thread already, how did that happen?! Ive booked our panto tickets now so am feeling very festive . Tips I learnt from the last thread number 24837 - wrap a huge cardboard box in christmas gift wrap to put all the rubbish on christmas day in rather than a bin bag so you dont get a black plastic sack in all of the photos
Please forgive the fact that so many sale and amazon products arent individually linked or are linked but price may since change by the time you click on it - so many of them are out of stock and amazon seem to change prices on an almost hourly basis (it feels like) on a number of items that were previously linked to. As usual please tell me if any of these links/codes dont work or if theres anything particularly you want to be in the next OP (assuming there is another )
how would I do any shopping without you now
for all your help in helping my christmas shopping in 2013 be once again bargainous

Thanks for the 10% off at Book People (NBACK). I'd been umming over whether to buy the 20 classic collection books so decided to go for it. £18 for 20 books is pretty good going. MUST NOT BUY ANY MORE BOOKS!!!!
WaitMonkey. I gave up with vertbaudet, they were not budging at all, said they couldn't discuss other customers blah blah blah. I will not be shopping with them again. Also posted a comment on their Facebook page. I'm really tempted to return my items, but bought a cute outfit for my new nephew and a lovely dress for DD (which she doesn't need).
Hello! Sending you labour vibes girls
Love those magpie mugs...darn it doing mugs last year!
If anyone sees any Emma Bridgewater can they let me know please?
cake and brew for all
God I feel quite schizophrenic, on the one hand looking resolutely away from talk of Christmas Eve hot choc and baileys ( but easily imaging some kind of wunder Christmas )and on the other hand celebrating the end of the summer holidays.
I need to be careful tho', I lose my job on Christmas Eve (really) so I may obsess with making this Christmas too perfect as a distraction.
Thanks to reastie as always for the summation.
Leilandri thanks for the link to those advent candles on the Ace website, either of them would have fitted the bill nicely, the postage to me though would be an eye watering £5.99 unfortunately
Thanks reastie <<quietly leaves and goes to bed>>
I returned my Vertbaudet items. Didn't like the pink t-shirt for DD. The sportsbag was ugly. I did get the toolbox in another order, which I paid nothing for at all, as they sent it on its own and canceled the item I ordered.
joymaker Ace is the same as Studio, I believe. I recieve the Ace catalogue, my Dmum recieves the Studio one and they are identical. Apparently code 032 works with studio for free delivery? Worth a search ... I recieved my candle today (chose the tall white one) and it is lovely. Going in my 1st December hamper that accompanies our Elfs arrival
LEGO Friends Readers - 4 Books £4.99 at the Book People and cheaper still with the new 10% off code posted in OP
Thank you reastie
iloveholidays I bought that Book People Classic Collection for my DD a while back and she loves them!
Great, thanks Poppy. I know DD1 will love them, it's just we have so many books I'd been putting it off
Loving ths years bargain threads, Reastie! Ive reserved a £9.99 designafriend doll for DD's Xmas, thanks to person who posted in last gasps of previous thread
I tried my luck with Vertbaudet too, god that sports bag was vile and I ended up with 3 from 2 orders when they said they wouldn't send a second bag and would replace with a CARS beach towel, I phoned back today as got bag with second order no towel and got crappy bollocks from their CS saying towel now out of stock so would more than likely have crap sports bag number 3 on its way booooooo will return at max expense to Vertbaudet!!
ilove I don't understand how they have gotten away with treating people so differently. I won't be using them again.
Sorry kiwi but the three sportsbags has made me laugh.
I've just seen someone post on another thread that the playmobil pyramid is £39.99 at toys r us - good price for this I think.
My book people order arrived today with Lego readers and the captain Flynn series as presents.
I want to know NOW who my Secret Santa is so that I can buy a mug
Yay, another thread, thank you reastie
Smyths toys have the imaginext T. rex for £25 instead of £40. Amazon cheapest is £35 including postage so it's quite a bit cheaper.
Was in B&M today got a Lego ninjago set from over 7 pounds to 3.99 it was small but not a super common one since my dc didn't have it already sorry can't tell you which it is in the boot!
They also had a little disney doll (the one with the dress you clip on) for 2.99 Cinderella, Snow White Ariel, etc
asda had the new Disney mermaid DVD for £10 (not sure if that is good or not)
Oh and when I looked last night you could get the Christmas finger puppets for 1.51 on eBay.
