My lovely friend Laura invited us over to the huge new Poundstretcher and Pet Hut store that opened last month here in Bangor. She helps manage the quite frankly gigantic superstore, and Michael & I called over to check out the bargains.
We loved the Hello Kitty collection they have for your own little kitty cat. I want to buy the bed for Mrs Meow.
The collection also has pet bowl mats for just £1.99 to help keep your kitchen floor clean, as well as scratching posts and boxes.
There are lots of other designs if you want something more chic....
... or seafaring.
Or just silly.
The Pet Hut also has bargain pet foods, treats, and basics for all types of animal, even princess hamsters.
The Poundstretcher half of the store has a massive selection of groceries and homewares as well as toys, stationary, clothing, and seasonal products. Here are some fun items we spotted.
Lots of gorgeous, chunky wool as well as other crafting supplies.
A whole row of kitchen brights. Great to jazz up your parlour this dull autumn.
We found tonnes of great Christmas present ideas at super prices. These cuddly cushions were just £3.99
And these flapping slippers are only £4.99 compared to the tv advertised ones which cost at least twice that.
Cute reindeer print bobble hats, I wouldn't mind one myself but I have a notoriously huge head that doesn't fit normal person hats. Shush- it's a seriously ailment!!!
Super cute stocking filler hot water bottles. Perfect present for grannies. Reduced to £3.99
Very Cath Kidston without having to spend £25
There are lots of little gift sets too at great prices. Good presents for teachers, Sunday School leaders, aunties etc.
Put a fox on anything and I'll want it. These felt bags for £2.99 are a steal.
Lastly some kitschy Christmas decorations. They've a whole aisle of your usual tinsel, baubles etc at great prices, but these couple of items stuck out as I've never seen them elsewhere even at a higher price.
In love with these candy cane solar lights. Going to get myself some for the front garden and four of them for £5 is grand.
Lastly these 3D decorations caught my eye as they are so tacky and kitsch (sorry, Laura!) but in the best way. Proper, old school 1970s' style over the top Christmas. I love them.
Happy, shiny Santa.
