It's ugly!

IndiansInTheLobby Wed 08-Jan-14 21:05:28

Oh Lord. I might get a few for mum and dad. It goes in the basket as 50p!

GideonKipper Wed 08-Jan-14 21:05:41

Seriously tempted! How much do you reckon it would get on eBay if it hadn't even been unwrapped? bearing in mind there will probably be hundreds of them on there.

I read that as the Richmond Hamond and thought oooh he made a chair! I'm tired.

GideonKipper Wed 08-Jan-14 21:06:24

It's very ugly Hector, but it's fifty pence. Cheaper than a loaf of bread!

There's a reason WHY they are 50p grin

IndiansInTheLobby Wed 08-Jan-14 21:07:29

It can't really be that much though can it?

DontmindifIdo Wed 08-Jan-14 21:07:47

Oh look, even if you only get 99p for it, as long as you put it as 'collection only' you're not going ot lose out by buying and e-baying and you might make a nice profit.

Buy one get one half price - did you read the top bar?

dickyduckydido Wed 08-Jan-14 21:08:08

I just ordered one to see what happens!!!

Truffkin Wed 08-Jan-14 21:08:56

I've 'bought' 2. I should imagine they will withdraw them from sale once they realise the mistake!

OhTheDrama Wed 08-Jan-14 21:09:07

So tempted to buy and donate to the Oxfam furniture shop near us.

Did anyone else notice that the also viewed items at the bottom of the page were all the fugly metallic heel court shoes that are on another thread on here grin

BitchyFestiveFace Wed 08-Jan-14 21:09:48

Hmm I just put one in my basket and got an error message. I don't think they will honour this price grin

GideonKipper Wed 08-Jan-14 21:10:28


Buy one get one half price - so you can get two M&S armchairs for 75p?

It's obviously a big balls up and they'll retract it like other retailers have done in similar circumstances. Or is it?

Shakey1500 Wed 08-Jan-14 21:10:40

My order has gone through as well smile

WetDogLovesHubert Wed 08-Jan-14 21:11:18

Currently persuading my DH to buy one grin

Lottiedoubtie Wed 08-Jan-14 21:11:21

I'm tempted! Recovering it would be cheaper than buying one in a nice fabric...

SoonToBeSix Wed 08-Jan-14 21:11:34

I ordered twogrin

Bearfrills Wed 08-Jan-14 21:12:01

Mine has gone through too ...

GideonKipper Wed 08-Jan-14 21:12:59

You've actually ordered them?

Dithering here.

TheFantasticFixit Wed 08-Jan-14 21:13:33

Oh my eyes, it's bloody hideous. As much as I want to get it just o see whether it would turn up, that thing is so fugly I fear I would never get over the sight of it if it did!
