Best Poundland Find Ever!

I’ve spoken in the past about my love for Poundland bargains, there is simply no denying that I love shopping there, and today was literally one of those days that was completely unexpected and full of complete thrill...
Influence by Mary-Kate and Ashley is one of my favourite fashion books, I eagerly awaited its release in 2008 and bought my copy after months of lusting after it. It certainly didn’t disappoint, my 19-year old self adored the Olsen twins, and it’s always one I refer back to again and again. It’s a true coffee table book, which oozes style, fashion and freedom.
Basically, I LOVE this book.
When I spotted this on the shelf in my local Poundland (Sheffield, Crystal Peaks) this morning I couldn’t quite believe my eyes, this book is worth much, much more than the £1 price tag, which of course makes me a little sad, even the greatest are sometimes destined for the clearance.
When they released this book it came with two different covers (one Mary-Kate and one Ashley) and at the time I ordered it, it was a gamble to which one I would get, so I just had to buy a second copy with the opposite cover for my own bookshelf today.
p.s I’ve missed you.

  1. That's just what I love about Poundland - you never know what you'll find! How cool that you got the second copy to compliment your first book. We missed you blogging too x

    1. In essence it's the exact same book, but the covers are different so of course it makes perfect sense!
      Aww thank you, I've missed you Sophie xxx

  7. Lovly to see your blog pop up again! I was admiring a huge Bollywood film poster book at Mumbai airport a couple of years ago but it was £30 and way out of my price limit. Guess what turned up in Poundland in the summer? I only wish I'd bought two! x

    1. Thank you Vix. It just goes to show the most unexpected items can turn up in Poundland. I paid about £20 for my original copy of Influence, if only I'd known it would turn up in Poundland! xxx
