Home Sense opens in the Arndale Centre Manchester

Dormouse and The Teapot were lucky enough to be invited along to the launch of the new Home Sense store which opened in the Arndale Centre, Manchester today.

Coronation Street's Antony Cotton cuts the ribbon and opens the store

If you are not familiar with Home Sense they stock a wide range of eclectic branded homeware at up to 60% of the RRP. The new branch stocks a mind boggling 50,000 items for the home with 10,000 new items arriving each week, just in case you needed an excuse to pop in more than once.

As ever we had our vintage goggles on and found that Home Sense the perfect place if you are looking for vintage-style items to give your home that shabby-chic look. 

We tried to restrain ourselves, but here are some of our top catches, as well as a couple that simply got away ....


These sprinkles were in such cute little jars, we could imagine them on display pride of place on our vintage dresser.

 

Boxes, boxes, boxes.  Did we ever tell you how much we love pretty boxes?  Just look how gorgeous these ones are, and starting at under a tenner too!

This little pink hamper was snapped up fast, shame as it would have been perfect for those lovely summer picnics in the park for two.


What a lovely, interesting book and perfect for Fathers Day.  Shhh!


Last but not least, we were desperate for this head, an incredible creation made out of recycled magazines, but sadly it was too heavy for us to carry home on the Metrolink.

Oh well never mind,we will be back, no bull!
