Treasure Seeker

Yesterday I made a trip to my local TK Maxx because they had planned a grand re-opening after some changes to the store recently. I had pencilled this day into my diary as I knew they were giving away some free gift cards to the first 200 customers.
I’ve always loved searching high and low in TK Maxx for the best bargains, so this was too good a chance to miss out on. I stood in a little queue amongst some more savvy shoppers (a little like a jumble sale) but it resulted in me receiving a £10 gift card for free to spend on whatever I may wish. I decided to raid the upstairs, the home section will always win me over and I headed towards the stationery, whilst there I spotted a set of drawers in the corner of my eye and instantly knew it was a Joules print. To say I have been shopping in TK Maxx for over seven years I have never ever seen anything of Joules before, which is why it was quite a pleasant surprise.
These drawers were priced at £9.99 and my gift card was for £10, which made me think it must have been meant to be right from the start. I’ve always had a soft spot for Joules, especially after visiting some of their gorgeous stores in Cornwall this summer; I’m such a lover of their beautiful floral prints.
I always feel a little burst of excitement when shopping in TK Maxx because you never know what you are going to find, and that is predominantly why I love shopping there. These drawers are the perfect addition to my nearly finished craft room and I’m sure will find a lovely home on my desk.

  5. Gorgeous find Alice, I am especially smitten by their starry insides! One of our local ones had a grand re-opening with free gift cards but I missed it by a day! I was supposed to be going to TK Maxx yesterday but Pyf didn't feel like going anywhere so we had a day at home. I'm planning on heading there next Saturday though as I want to get another look in at their Hallowe'en stuff to see if there is anything new! I feel exactly the same way about TK Maxx as you, it really is a brilliant shop! ~♥~
