An Evening at Home Sense, Lincoln – The Christmas Edition!
I was invited to spend a couple of hours browsing our local Home Sense store this evening and I had a really lovely time. I wrote a post about how much I loved Home Sense when it first opened here in Lincoln last year so I was really excited to be invited tonight.
We were treated to a selection of sandwiches and lovely looking cakes as well as a cup of tea in gorgeous tea cups.
I was soooo tempted to have some cake, but I hadn’t had dinner yet and I’m also trying really hard to stick to Slimming World so I just had tea. Ant had some sandwiches and said they were really delicious.
Of course, I made a beeline for their Christmas stock and I probably spent the most time in that part of the shop! If you know how much I LOVE Christmas, you’ll know how much I loved seeing all the decorations 🙂
|I’m totally going back to buy this before Christmas! I LOVE it and have no idea why I didn’t bring it back with me tonight!|
I met some fellow Lincolnshire bloggers and we were each given a gift card so we could get ourselves a little treat.
I picked a gorgeous wooden advent calendar that both Ant and I fell in love with. I was a bit reallllyyyy torn between the Santa above and advent calendar but the advent calendar won after lots of deliberating!
I also got 6 iced coffee glasses that we’re going to use for ice cream sundaes. They were only £2 for 2. There are loads of bargains to be had at Home Sense.
It looks like it’s going to be a really expensive shop when you first walk in, but the prices are excellent.
The advent calendar was £19.99 and worth every penny in my opinion. I now have to find some little gifts I can put inside the drawers for the girls. I don’t think Aiden’s going to be bothered about an advent calendar that doesn’t contain chocolate!
There are so many wonderful things in this store that you could easily spend a couple of hours wandering round and still probably miss loads!
I have to apologise for the change in lighting on the next photos. They were the first ones I took and I totally forgot to check my settings. I forgot that I changed them to try and capture the blood moon the other night (managed one of the eclipse but none of the blood moon because I couldn’t stay awake!) and didn’t change it back.
They obviously don’t show the items in all their colourful glory, but I do still like the effect so I’m keeping ’em and using ’em!
Here’s another Santa I fell in love with. If there’s any money left in the Christmas budget when I’ve finished buying presents I think I’m going to go and buy a white Santa and a brown one to use on my Christmas mantel decoration 🙂
I’ll be back tomorrow with some photos of gorgeous glassware, fine furniture and a few delights to tickle the tastebuds!
