Homesense, How Bizarre

I have never been to a HomeSense UK before today. There were not any near where I used to live in East London so I didn't realise until today that I was missing out. 

I was invited to go and take a look around HomeSense and really get a better idea of what it is they do. When I tweeted out that it was to be my first visit, I was inundated with people telling me how much I would enjoy it. (And to look out for a feathered polar bear) 

According to their Twitter Bio, "HomeSense is different because we offer quality homeware for up to 60% less everyday, we have an eclectic range of products to suit every taste!"

Yep, they had me at different. 

I could spend weeks in HomeSense, I was told how they dont have a warehouse, they just get deliveries from across the world daily and everything goes straight on the shelves so if you see something you want, BUY it. 

(As I walked in, a lady walked out with a wooden mannequin that I would have snapped up like a shot, but unfortunately there was only of them. Although there was an actual Tailor's dummy for sale as well) 

Some of the amazing things I spotted.

As I said in the title of this post. It truly is bizarre, or more accurately, like walking round a Bizarre, looking for treasure. I could have purchased so many things in there today and will be returning ASAP. (Multi-coloured giraffe, you may be mine) 

As it is, I picked up a Baylis and Harding gift set as a gift for someone. 

Oh and some hand warmers. 

If you've never been to a HomeSense Uk before then may I suggest you remedy that immediately, you can check them out online to find your nearest store and if you HAVE been to a HomeSense before, I want to know what strange and wonderful things you have purchased there. 

Let me know.

  1. We freaking LOVE Homesense! Last time I was in there they had a gorgeous zebra print screen and a leopard woven rug. You'd pay about £200 each for them in John Lewis but they were about £60 each, amazing! J x

  2. Ah, the wonders of Homesense! I wish I could get to one easily, maybe it's a good thing though or I'd probably spend far too much money! xxx

  3. Loveeee Homesense! I have so many things in my home from there. Nothing crazy just lovely candles, orchids and ornaments. Amazing for Christmas decorations and quirky gifts.

Due to increased spam comments I am now having to moderate the comments I receive. I will do my best to get them approved quickly so please, carry on commenting as every time you comment a kitten smiles.
