Ok, well not so much a sale or reduced item but Wilkinsons online have really cheap craft stuff.
I bought loads last year and saved a fortune.
They even have little caddys with different things in, like Playdough for about £3.99.

Thanks for the link prettymum. We went last year and was saying to dd the other day that I would look into booking again. Seeing this thread reminded me and we are now booked and the date put on the calender. Dd is sooo excited already she asked me how many sleeps until we go!!!

Thank you again. x

HappyNewYearFeet06 Thu 21-Aug-08 10:07:09

Fimbo, last year they got a sticker book and a badge. They then take photo's that you can nuy if you want to. We bought ours as gifts for relatives.


MummyDoIt Thu 21-Aug-08 10:07:27

I was in Matalan yesterday and picked up three 8 metre long, extra wide rolls of wrapping paper for just 50p each! I don't normally like to think about Christmas this early but they were just too good to ignore.

Eddas Thu 21-Aug-08 10:08:56

fimbo, i like the underground ernie trainset. But i've just bought a Thomas one for ds from a friend of a friend.

I was thinking of getting my nephew the dalek voice changer mask but wasn't sure if someone else'd get it(like his mum!) and if he'd still like doctor who by then, he's 9 so changeablegrin

I love threads like this!!

Fimbo Thu 21-Aug-08 10:09:36

Thanks HappyNYFeet. My dc will be more than happy with a sticker book and badge.

Have yet to tell dh we are going on a day trip to London! Actually might turn it into a mini trip and use a youth hostel which is another bargain picked up on MN!

buriedheadinthesand Thu 21-Aug-08 10:13:31
