Boden sale: put loads of stuff in basket. Yay! Baby screamed, had to go. Came back this morning: EVERYTHING gone

Next sale: went to preview page (no farkin VIP) slot - EVERYTHING gone and it hasn't even started for us plebs yet...

I was really hoping for a cheap merino tunic and some wideleg pants and some new curtains.

I'm boycotting them now.

God how annyoying. I hate sales.

Wilf,keep checking Boden site as things come back into stock.

WilfSell Fri 18-Jul-08 19:13:58

really? on the stock thing I mean. My basket was marked in red in very stern words: these are now out of stock and WILL NOT be restocked.

They might well have added 'so next time don't be so bloody indecisive or cocky and just get your bleeding credit card out...' Or perhaps I just imagined that.

Yes,but when people return things they come back into stock . I wanted something in the christmas sale,carpenter jeans or something,they went out of stock and then came back in.
Worth keeping an eye on it anyway.
What did you want,to be nosey?grin

I wanted the graphite wide-leg/onebutton jacket suit for work and the merino tunic and long cardi... All in my size yesterday; all farkin gone today...

Wilfsell,I can understand the Merino Tunic,I have the green and the grey and love them!
Actually,have the mocha here waiting to go back,size 10.Any good to you?
Like it but not sure what to wear it with.Is perhaps a bit dull....

WilfSell Fri 18-Jul-08 20:43:33

god no, am far too fat! But thanks - it's a kind offer.

SilentTerror Fri 18-Jul-08 20:46:06

No problem!
I exchanged quite a bit last week from my original order,but couldn't make my mind up about the tunic.
Will wait a few days to see what is in stock/further reduced,if nothing takes my eye will exchange for something from Autumn preview I think.
Feels like autumn anyway!

Ooooh, ST, thanks for your tip - back on Boden website this morning and got everything I wanted! Lots more stock in my sizes apparently.

OK so I'm considerable number of pound worse off now but at least they were sale prices and I have a wardrobe of workwear for autumn...

I wouldn't have gone back if you hadn't said so thanks.

Is this really stock returns or do they do this on purpose to make us really really want the stuff when we can't have it so than it makes prevaricators like me just buy next time...? Or am I just overly paranoid? grin
