    Wilkinsons Reductions thread 5th Feb 13 at 12:43 PM
    Hi all, haven't seen this anywhere else and don't think it belongs in the Christmas one so here goes!

    Just been to my local store and they have 2 trollies full of discounted items, plenty of each including:

    Dog misfit biscuits 69p various different ones
    Lucozade 1L both original and Orange 50p!!!
    Ribena small bottles 39p
    Ambipur 3volution 3.99 - including the plug in and a freshener
    Single ambi pur plug ins 2.00
    Small red pan - 2.99
    Curtain tie backs 1.50 - single tie back with beads
    Small pink photo frames 1.00
    Regina Kitchen Roll - didnt see the price as someone was just taking the last 3!

    needless to say i stocked up on the bits we go through in my house

    Don't know if its nationwide or local but worth trying

    HTH someone

    i was looking forward to a good haul from Sheffield on Saturday.
    LOADS of red sale signs everywhere - yet everything i looked at was the same price it's always been.
    loves how my "I've been censored" signature has been censored. LOL. Happy Christmas.

    You need to price check some of the items as everything has not been marked up in the sale. Lots of stuff online but most now OOS but it gives you an idea of what to look for instore. Got some lovely butterfly photo frames for 1, however still showing 10 online so was very surprised to see those marked down instore.

    I went to the Norwich store on my lunch break and it was heaving. However I did manage to get some good stuff, fluffy mattress protectors for 5 each, Kingsize duvet for 5, fitted sheet for 2, peacock pillows 2 each, fully lined eyelet curtains 5 a pair, photoframes 50p each, "Bath" signs 25p each.

    Loads of stuff going fast though, people were going mad. I got about 200 of stuff for 30 - now how to get it all home on the bus?!

    Another thanks for this thread, went to Chelmsford at lunchtime, some people a bit pushy/blocking aisles with pushchairs but they underestimated the gaps I could wiggle through... like a mouse :P

    Got four pairs of curtains (5 per pair), two blackout roller blinds (1 each!), curtain pole ends to match curtains (50p per set), matching centre lampshade (2), matching table lamp + shade (2).

    Oh and a double valance sheet that matches some duvets I have (2 I think).

    Recently bought my first house so I'm so so pleased with this

    Widne$ Wilkos was rammed today with lots of women with a crazed look in their eyes (me included!)

    I was very restrained and bought;

    4 8x6 black photoframes for 1 each (doing a black photoframe feature on the wall in the loo)

    Large aubergine lampshade 1

    Vanilla room scent oil 50p

    Two linen scented reed diffusers 50p each

    Toothbrush holder mug 25p

    There were a lot of fake flowers, some in vases for 25-50p, bedding from 2, cushions from 2 and lots more photoframes from 25p.

    I love this thread, thank you for all posters!

    Today's haul was:

    Large photo frame 1.50
    pendant light shade (ceiling) 1.00 small with blue shades to it
    flowers 0.10, 2 x 0.25
    lantern candle holder 0.25
    2 bath mats (the ones that stop you slipping in the bath) 0.25 each
    normal bath mat (lovely lime green one) 2

    they also had light pendants that were glass, very nice stylish ones at 5! they were taking all the lights down from display (hoping these may end up on discount too)

    brilliant discounts, plenty of people there getting the deals, didn't have enough time to have a nosey around the rest of the store, would have loved to get hold of some throws!

    Wilko bargain color mugs
    Couldn't see a Wilko bargains thread but had these gorgeous almost Pantone colourway mugs in Wilko in blue, red and green colorways. 1 a pop.

    Bone china, dishwasher etc safe and nice large size. Got 3 for work, 3 for brother's house and 3 for mine. They really do, especially the green etc look MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE and trendy, like they should be in Heals....

    Is anyone else finding the quality of the Wilkinson's products to be quite poor?
