    I was quite taken with the deep-frame 'treasures' sets they were selling at £1.99 (although didn't buy one - did anyone else?)

    They are quite large - about 10 inches by 8 inches? - and consist of a glass frame with about an inch depth to the base, intended for you to set out your own personal treasures in, for display or to hang on the wall.

    The set includes pins, to fix your photos, scraps, dried flowers, other objects etc, to the back of the frame; and labels, to write dates, descriptions on.

    The frames are available in three colours: rosewood (red-brown), mahoghany (dark brown) and pine (light brown).

    They look a bit like this:


    Seemed good value.

    In the Bradford store, they had 8 way surge protectors for 9.99.

    The difference? 6 of the sockets are remote controlled meaning all us lazy people can still be lazy and save power at the same time

    A big thank you to everyone who helped me with my Liverpool visit - I found both Audley St and the shop at HQ without any problems. The stock room at HQ is unbelievably huge!

    Both stores had lots of the Lagoon brand games and books.

    I also got a Trivial Pursuit Pop Culture DVD game - 10, but in a big impressive box RRP 30, and a re-chargeable torch for 4.99, RRP 15.

    I got a nice flowery painted 3 hook coat rack for 1.99 - funky, modern style. Last week they had very large (bigger than A3) art canvases for 1.99. Great for kids - do the background in emulsion and then paint with cheap acrylic paint sets which are 1 at the Works.

    Got a 4 pack of Sharpie twin tip permanent markers for 99p. (Black,blue,red, green) Think these are the ones Becks is advertising on tele now.

    Also saw a 6m (20ft) crossword puzzle, that folds up into a book. Loads of puzzles and games for 49p in Belle Vale Liverpool this morning.
