Has anyone been to that Oak Furnitureland Outlet on Whitebirk Retail Park yet? If you haven’t, you want to get yourself down there . . . I thought it was really good! Big mirrors for £40.00, massive clocks for £30.00 and loads more.
Last Saturday I had arranged to nip to Aldi for a mini shop and took my Grandad with me to get him out – change of scenery for him. Not that Aldi is some amazing day trip for him but he usually shops at Morrisons so Aldi is a change for him. Anyway, I said to him we’ll nip in that Oak Furnitureland for a mooch around. As soon as you walk in you see coffee tables, sideboards, dining tables etc, then there’s a small room on the right with thick wooden framed mirrors – all £40.00 but I didn’t need one of them so we didn’t go in. You then have bookcases, beds and a few sofas and chairs.
We have a 3 seater cream leather sofa that Debbie from work gave us when we first moved in which is perfect for the two of us but whenever we have guests over we have to keep getting the dining room chairs (or emergency chairs) out and it’s basically a massive ball ache. I’ve always wanted a quirky patchwork arm chair but refuse to pay £300+ for it. Not bloody made of money!
You can guess what is coming next . . . £99.00 for the most beautiful, comfy little arm chair EVER. I fell in love. Grandad fell in love. We couldn’t get over it. Why was it so cheap? What was wrong with it? Nothing. It was still on their website for just under £500.00 and I got it for less than £100. That’s less than 25%. We paid for it to be delivered which cost a further £20 but these 2 really nice guys dropped it off 2 days later.
Here is the website listing which I screenshot from my iPhone and next to it is my pretty little arm chair sitting perfectly against my living room wall.
