It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
There has never been a more undermining, juxtaposed and blatantly false statement made about anything ever! It seems to me that Christmas is increasingly becoming a burden. The weight of financial pressures put on families is mounting and accessibility to an entire shopping centre in your pocket is a lethal bullet for the wallet.
According to the Bank of England, the average household spends £2,500 per month, with expenditure increasing by £800 in December. Now this expenditure differs depending on the source, with last years YouGov survey concluding that an average of £1,116 is spent at Christmas and Politics Home claims this number is around the £700 mark. Either way, this is a massive expense and one that many of us struggle to afford. And that is not even considering this years circumstances.
Not only is Christmas becoming an expense many of us cannot afford, but the whole stress of it is overwhelming. Particularly during these uncertain times, when we don’t know whether we can even gather at Christmas!
But imagine if one of those stresses and probably the most important one could be drastically minimised?
What if you could do all of your Christmas shopping for under £200?
Well well well. You have most certainly come to the right place.
For the past couple of months, we have ensured our stock is suitable for Christmas. Working tirelessly to secure some incredible vendor contracts, which have led to a MASSIVE influx of toys, fragrances, home furnishings and more.
Need something for the kids? We have Hot Wheels tracks and cars, remote control spiders and cars, AI teddy bears, craft stuff and drones! Looking through the stats of our previous auctions, people have bagged a drone at an average of 65% off the retail price. Hot Wheels tracks, retailing at £70, have gone for an average of £30.
Got a stroppy teen? Treat them to a new smartphone, Simple Human makeup mirrors, selfie sticks and more. Our last Sunday Smartphone sale (regular sale), one very happy bidder won a 64GB Apple iPhone 11 Pro, retailing at £1,049, was purchased for £560. Now I am aware this is over the £200 mark, but it highlights the immense savings that can be made when shopping with us!
