    I'm not sure if the Butterfly Walk, Camberwell, London branch has the fruit and nut Twin Peaks but I know they have the original one, will have a look when I go in later.

    I went in today for a mascara and some hair clips but thought I should report back on my other findings .

    Much of the Christmas stuff was 1/2 price to 50p, and the more expensive items also reduced. I bought some spiced biscuits (400g packs, delicious any time of the year, exp 11/2019), tubes of orange Smarties (130g, making it relatively inexpensive for chocolate) and a Santa hat for next year. There was also a load of elf stuff, "decorative" signs etc also for 50p.

    What is also worth looking for is The Original Candle Co. merchandise (example pasted below) reduced to 50p, albeit with a limited range of scents. I was very happy with the tins (second from right) from earlier this year, so bought some more:



    The Jo Malone / Aldi imitation candles were nowhere to be seen!

    Lots of Harry Potter goodies at various prices. Direct page here (to allow you to view it all properly).

    Woops, also these from Union Street, Glasgow - fat-bottomed mugs that look rather cute (in coloured spots and strawberry design) 1 - dishwasher safe - though I have loads of mugs now

    Not so keen on the blue pattern or pink flowers design.

    Edit: Just realised they bear similarities to Emma Bridgewater mugs.

I didn't buy it because having been sucked in by similar claims before, I have always been disappointed (if it's worked, my hair has been an oil slick by day 2 - and I am now trying to wash less rather than more in a vain attempt to retain the colour).

    Yes they really are worth it as they smell great, give a long burn time and burn to the bottom of the tin. 25p is an excellent price so go grabbit!

    All the Christmas toot was reduced from 50p to 25p today. There were mostly decorative items left but I picked up some 5-pack gift bags (self-sealing), a LED wand and an elf notebook at this price.

    I also got what I went in for - an LED lightbulb. I've heard mixed reviews about these, but given they cost about 3 elsewhere and I won't be using the lamp that often, I thought they'd be worth a go, and it seems to be working fine. Was impressed by the range of lightbulbs they have in stock and they still have the display stand of large antique light bulbs.

    The I Love twin pack of perfumes are actually nice! I bought the Oud and Fresh one. I react to many perfumes but these I have been fine with.

    Hopefully I'm remembering the stores correctly, as this was earlier this morning!

    Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow:
    Maybelline Super Stay Lip Liner in 45 Cappuccino or 46 Red, 1

    LuxBeauty Slant Tweezer, 1

    Mug Off mugs for Valentine's (left to right) "I Want To Dunk My Soldier In You", "You'll Do", "You're So Fit, Run Off And Get Me A Brew", "you were meant to be a one night stand" (!)

    Let's Get Fit end aisle display (notably Special K - 300g and Fruit 'n' Fibre - 375g are usually priced at 2 these days)

    Union Street, Glasgow:
    Thurstons 3 pk Olives Stuffed With Anchovy Paste 120g (with liquid) 1

    Hot Wheels Star Wars 1

    Block Tech Base Plates (assume they fit Lego) 1

    Also, got this Manicare Calcium Gel, 11ml, 1, from Trongate, Glasgow yesterday

    Edit: Forgot this one (Sauchiehall Street)
    W7 Double Prime Lips And Brows Duo Primer 1.6g and W7 Butter Kiss Lipstick Fabulous Fuchsia 3g (both in one strip pack) 1

    There's a bit of blethering about the Poundland Mens' scent dupes (no-one's talking about the women's scents on HUKD yet,* though). I commented here

    100ml, EDT.

    Joop Homme! is Jape
    Invictus is Iconique
    1 Million is King In Million
    Cool Water is Aqua Chill

    The address given on the back seems to be one that is listed on a variety of Poundland brands, so these must be manufactured for them.

    *Edit: Actually, I found a Poundland female scent, as I remember seeing this on shelves! Beau Reve (copy of La Vie Est Belle) gets a good review halfway down the page here
