Thread: Done It !!

  1. #11
    I can see your point but we are all oldies so toiletries are always very welcome and they do get used.
    I never buy clothes because as you say fashions and sizes change as do tastes.
    The grandchildren get one item to open and are given money to spend as they wish. I would never dream of inflicting my tastes on them.

    If I didn't do it in the sales nobody would get anything expensive as I wouldn't be able to afford it.

    The one thing I have taken a risk on is for me. Daughter is getting married next year and I saw a beautiful dress in Roman. It came today, suits me and fits well, I will be hoping I don't put any weight on but it will be sod's law I do. 18 years I have been stable in weight and size, just watch me alter.

    I see what you mean, if it's toiletries, then yeah, they'll be fine. I don't think of them really, because of allergies I don't get any for Christmas, and I also don't give them really.

    I'm sure your dress will be fine for the big day. I hope you have a lovely day, and everything is fine on the day with your dress.

    I use wish all the time, takes a while for things to arrive, but never really had any problems. I have bought a lot of silver jewellery, so cheap. I’ve had more problems with Ebay as of late. Hope your granddaughter likes it?

    Have you ever tried https://www.everything5pounds.com/en/
    Had some brilliant stuff from there. The trick is to read the model's size and see what size she is wearing.
    For example if the model is a 10 and wearing a size 12 then a size bigger than your normal needs to be ordered, if she is a 10 and wearing a 10 then the size is average, etc.

    The only problem is that you don't know the make until they arrive but the labels are not cut out.
    Got a simple cardi end of the year, turns out to be a Damart and a jumper was EWM. Not bad for a fiver, worth paying the delivery charge.

    I've never heard of wish, do they charge import fees on delivery to the UK?

    Received a delivery from Everything £5 yesterday.
    2 jumpers that are lovely but the coup was some smart black trousers in wool and silk material , turns out they are M&S Autograph. Mine are the straight leg style but Marks are still selling the tapered leg style in the same material, priced at £40. Now that is what I call a bargain, big difference between £5 and £40
