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 http://www.homesense.com 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.
