Liberty Bag in the Bag!

I went for a wander into the town centre yesterday with my little boy and decided to have a quick look round TK Maxx as hadn't been in there for a while and I am quite partial to their home wear dept.  I spotted a lonely pot Cath Kidston Cuticle cream on the shelf for £3.99 (instead of the usual £8):

So i went to queue up to buy this little lovely. Now our TK Maxx queue line is a jumble of shelves with loads of odds and sods thrown on them, well what did I find thrown on the shelf right next to my knee:
Only the limited edition Liberty Bag for Comic Relief!! I grabbed it quick and went to the till. The lady serving me said " Blimey where did you find that bag, we haven't got any left and there wont be any more coming in" With slight glee I did tell her someone had obviously not realised the little bit of gold dust they had and had dumped it on the bottom shelving unit.

Now these little beauties cost £12.99 but have been selling on ebay for upwards of £20 (and that's the cheap ones already sold) and I have a feeling that they are going to go up in price still. Does anyone remember the got to have it "I am not a plastic bag" by Anya Hindmarch:

This one went nuts with people in my town queuing in the early hours outside the supermarket after our local paper said that they were getting a delivery of 50 of them the next morning - and yes there were elbows at dawn that day. I didn't go into the fight for that bag and I really couldn't put the effort in to get one lol  - but they did sell for ridiculous prices on ebay which then spurred the rise of the fake Hindmarch bags which overtook my local market.

I know the Liberty bag is not going to go a crazy as the Hindmarch bag but its still a little gem, and nope I'm not going to be putting it on ebay as I do love it. So it's going to on my arm this sunday on my boot sale treasure hunt and may it bring me lots more bargain hunting treasure finding luck :o)

  1. Hiya - great TK Maxx finds. Haven't had a good rummage there for ages. I haven't seen that Liberty comic relief bag before (dunno where I've been) but it's lovely, well done!

  2. Woot!! i absolutely love the bag! I dropped by TK Maxx yesterday but sadly i passed by the bags area and went straight to the 2nd floor to the kitchen section. i'm just sooo in love with Cath Kidston's stuff, went into Beales to see Cath's mugs, grabbed one mug of hers coz they have 20% off :)

  3. That Liberty print is very pretty. I have never heard of TK Maxx-is it a department store?

  4. I was eyeing up this bag in TK Maxx on Monday, now I'm regretting not buying it!!!

  5. I'm rather partial to Cath Kidston cuticle cream - it feels super luxurious for the price and smells divine! What a fantastic find the Liberty bag too!! A bargain AND for a good cause :-)

  6. Kylie its a discount goods store, like a department store but they have loads of branded stuff at discount prices :o) You have to rummage though to get the good stuff. Scarlett x

  7. Great find on the cream Scarlett. I saw the bags in TK Maxx the other day, didn't realise they are selling on ebay! See my post for my TK Maxx bargin lol

    Bee happy x

  8. Great finds, Scarlett. I can't get to grips with TK Maxx. It's just tooooo big and there's just toooooooooooo much stuff. I was in one, the other day, for about 2 minutes, and then I had to leave! Couldn't cope! (I know, I'm seriously bonkers).

  9. I love that comic relief bag i hadn't heard or seen it before but what a beauty no wonder you were excited ;-)) Have a great weekend and happy car booting ;-)) dee x
