    Glad to see this thread hasn't been locked!

    (Potentially) interesting/exciting news for those in Glasgow - the old Argyle Street, Glasgow Poundworld site now has a new occupant (picture taken around 8.30pm on Saturday):

    One Below is a name that's new to me but competition is always healthy (Poundland, in my opinion, are the numero uno, deservedly so, as I'm a big fan).

    Edit: And, I didn't know this, looks as though Chris Edwards is back in the game! "OneBelow is the latest venture by Poundworld founder Chris Edwards and will sell a variety of household products and food for under 1, according to The Grocer.
    The first branch to open will be in Leeds at the end of February, with further plans to open stores in Bradford, Wakefield, Glasgow, Irvine and two in London by the end of March."

    Great news! I'm a big admirer of Chris as well!

    From Argyle Street, Glasgow yesterday morning.

    Baltus Candles 10 Luxury Tealights, Mojito or Gin Fizz (Burn Time 4 Hours Approx).

    My sister loves candles and has been looking out for their diffusers/candles (plenty in Watt Brothers here and here at the moment, if you're in Scotland).

    I'd never heard of them before now - they're Scottish as well!

    Google Images tells me these Tealights come in other varieties such as Strawberry Daiquiri, Pink Prosecco, Gin & Tonic, Sparkling Champagne, Kir Royale, Prosecco & Raspberry etc, but I could only see these two in my OneBelow store.

    Argyle Street, Glasgow (late on Wednesday)

    Bandai Finding Dory SwiggleFish, Age 4+, 1

    Despicable Me Mailbox Mischief, 1

    Smooshy Mushy Besties, 1
    Saturn Putty, Square Putty Boxes 1

    Says "Shaker Bottle 600ml" on the shelf label - Llamas or Mermaids design water bottles - think the Sky Blue-topped ones are Unicorns.

    Whether these are any good remains to be seen, as I didn't buy one.
