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!

If I hadn’t already bought Aiden, Kaycee and Ella their tree decorations for this year, I’d have totally got them these lollipop decorations. I adore them and might have to pick them up anyway and save them for next year when I go back for my sparkly tree!

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!

    Look at all that cuteness on one page. I Love Christmas. It seems to get bigger in our house every year and there's always room for more baubles!

    I LOVE all the Christmassy stuff out in the shops already!

    This looks like an excellent place for Christmas shopping. I do like your advent calendar and I'm sure that you'll enjoy using it every year.

    I love Homsense – was cursing hubby when he changed jobs and no longer worked next door. Love the Christmas ranges

    I liked all the rustic looking HomeSense decorations – it's made me think about Christmas now!

    I do like Home Sense. I wish there was one that was more convenient. There is one within a reasonable drive, but it isn't very well sited for us as never need to go that way.

    I am so jealous that we don't have Home Sense here. Although as you can imagine we are rather spoilt when it comes to Christmas Decs! 🙂

    Oh my gosh they have the cutest things, I really wish we had a Homesense nearby. x

    There isn't a Homesense anywhere near me. I wish there was, the stuff looks amazing.

    I suddenly have the urge to watch Christmas films now!! I love Christmas too and I need to check and see if we have a Home Sense close to us x

    I knew when I saw the title it would be right up your street. I don't think there's a Home Sense near where I live but I will check.

Don't be shy, come and talk to me! :o)
