only to find they are made by Gisela Graham.

You can pick her stuff up at the garden centre!

Well, you obviously liked them enough to buy them, that's not changed?

Who do you think manufacturers for liberty? Elves?

Meeep Fri 24-Nov-17 14:03:01

If you were buying them because you loved them, then nothing has changed, so, chill out?

Caroelle Fri 24-Nov-17 14:03:42

What does it matter? We looked at the decorations in Liberty, I thought it was clear that some were by Gisela Graham.

NoFuckingRoomOnMyBroom Fri 24-Nov-17 14:04:32

Why does it matter who made them? Did you buy them because you liked them or because you wanted to say they were exclusive? hmm

Liberty's just a department store. It sells lots of brands, it's just very nice to wander round. You need to look for the Liberty branded stuff if that's what you want. But if you like the decorations then just enjoy them.

Surely you saw by the price? That they weren't Liberty?

Nothing wrong with GG.

And probably made in a factory in China too...

CynophobicSadness Fri 24-Nov-17 14:10:23

Did you buy them with the intention of telling everyone that comes round to your house that "they're from Liberty's don't you know!" and then brag about the designer label and ludicrous cost?

If not, who cares that they're GG decs? You like them don't you?

Take them back if it bothers you that much.

You still can say "I got these at Liberty".

It's still true.

<snort> at “Elves” grin

I went to Liberty’s and almost fainted at the prices. How much for a scarf??!! I “get” that they’re luxury/high end etc but Ye Gads

Well yes, I did buy them from Liberty on the basis that they would be a bit better than something I can pick up from the garden centre down the road ... and then I could show off about my designer tree, natch.

I was going to keep the bag and put some other random stuff in just in case I couldn't mention where of 3 of my baubles came from into the conversation when people come round.

And this is lighthearted in case that wasn't clear!

It doesn't come across as lighthearted.

It comes across as snobbery.

TrollTheRespawnJeremy Fri 24-Nov-17 14:40:00

Hang the liberty carrier on your tree. Vair festive!

TSSDNCOP Fri 24-Nov-17 14:43:52

Who is Gisela Graham (off to Google).

It does Pirate no one really posts about this and means it.

Can you fashion the plastic bag into a skirt for your fairy Op?

NoFuckingRoomOnMyBroom Fri 24-Nov-17 14:44:43

Really? confused Nothing about your OP comes across as lighthearted-you might want to work on that...
But yes-hanging the Liberty bag on the tree would be the way to go.

WitchesHatRim Fri 24-Nov-17 14:45:37

It does Pirate no one really posts about this and means it.

You'd be surprised.

fruitbrewhaha Fri 24-Nov-17 14:46:16

You could hang the bag on the tree too grin

fruitbrewhaha Fri 24-Nov-17 14:48:33

Of course it's lighthearted ffs. It's baubles.

TSSDNCOP Fri 24-Nov-17 14:49:33

I've looked them up now. And put a heart shaped holly wreath in my basket.

Damn you Op!

RebeccaWithTheGoodHair Fri 24-Nov-17 14:51:17

Plastic?! It's bright purple card my dear with lovely gold embossed writing . I'll use it instead of the fairy ...

Sweetpea55 Fri 24-Nov-17 14:52:17

Why didn't you pick something a bit more flashy? You obviously thought they were upmarket when you saw them..
If that's the case then its the name that matters most for you

RebeccaWithTheGoodHair Fri 24-Nov-17 14:56:49

And put a heart shaped holly wreath in my basket

can't go wrong with a wreath - I bought a tit on a mushroom!

Vitalogy Fri 24-Nov-17 15:06:53

It took me a couple of years to psych myself up into splashing out on a Gisela Graham fairy for the top of my tree. star glitterball
