My best bargain was probably this bag. It's a really roomy shopper sort of bag - too big for me for every day probably, but great for times when I have a lot of junk to lug around. It has expandable sides too, so you can really cram a lot in here if you need to. I really like the pretty pink floral print on a deep grey background and this was only £16 so it would have been rude not to buy it!
I also bought a set of four star print mugs which come in a pretty tin. They don't go with my kitchen at all, so like a bit of a mad woman I'm putting them away for when I get my new kitchen in the future. They were £12.50 reduced from £25.
More star prints, but in different colours - I bought this massive clear umbrella. I've always liked the clear domed sort of umbrellas and used to buy them a lot years ago. This one's a regular umbrella shape rather than a dome and it seems really sturdy compared to the flimsy domed ones I used to have. It was raining and snowing when I was in Oxford, so I justified this purchase as a necessity! I had the tag snipped off in the shop for me, so I'm not sure of the exact price -I'm sure it was somewhere between £12 and £15.
In this photo you can also see my new Cath Kidston table cloth - this was an intended purchase as I've wanted one for ages. I bought the large size for my big dining room table and it was about £25.
On my way to the till I added a few more unnecessary items - a cute little makeup bag and purse. I sort of needed the purse as when I use a small handbag my long Ted Baker purse doesn't fit inside, but I really didn't need another makeup bag! The makeup bag was £6 and the little clasp purse was £4.
As they had some of my favourite prints in stock I also grabbed a couple of pretty tea towels for £4 each.
And lastly another thing to hoard until my new kitchen is these pretty nesting tins. They were £10.50 and I had to have them as this is probably my all time favourite Cath Kidston print - provence rose.
So all in all I was very impressed with the Cath Kidston outlet - lots of the things I bought are still being sold on cathkidston.co.uk for full price, so they definitely felt like bargains and I can't wait to see what they'll have next time.
