Pound Shop and Proud

Is anyone still reluctant to admit they shop at pound shops? Or has the recession made pound shops trendy? I for one have always loved them. Why on earth would you pay more for the same thing elsewhere?

I looked around my home and realised so many things were found in pound shops that I thought I’d do my bit to banish pound shop shame and share with you the surprise finds I’ve seen in pound shops on my travels. (And, no, I’m not talking about bin bags and kitchen roll.)

1. Candle holders
There’s nothing like candlelight to help you feel relaxed and cosy on a quiet evening. Poundland usually has a varied selection of candles, holders and votives for you to choose from.

2. Photo frames
We love photo prints in our house so we have a lot of photo frames dotted about the place, most of which came from pound shops.

3. Plant pots
Have you seen these pots though??

They make fabulous caddies for kitchen utensils, pen pots, oh, and for putting actual plants in. They’re from the Charlie Dimmock range at Poundland and they fit in perfectly with a rustic, shabby chic or ‘beautility’ look. Yep, I said beautility: beautiful/utility. Moving on…

4. Coasters
Practical, yes, but they don’t just have to be functional; the humble coaster can be a stylish accessory in its own right! I love my crackle mirror coasters and use them underneath pillar candles for a gorgeous sparkle as well as for drinks.

So go on, go out there, find your nearest pound shop and look at their home accessories in a new light. Beautify your home for less! And pick up some kitchen roll while you’re at it.
