deals over the last few years were not as good, but i the early years I got a few nice things

best was a Disney, 3 piece lithograph set was £150, every where had wanted it for some time, got it on bud up for £32

What a shame! I used to watch them in my student days as a bit of company while I did my work, they were a bit addictive! Never bought anything though.

This is a must for any home you have toget it. It was the same for every item what a load of crap they sold most of the time. I use to watch it but found out to my cost to send a item back cost as much as the goods. I now stick to quality shopping channels like QVC and idea world.I for one will not miss the crap they was selling

not always

Got some goo9d things cheap when it first started up. Looked in recently and the stuff looked boring and expensive too.

i,m not surprised, but the worst thing they ever did was change price drop to that silly way of trading, i stopped buying because i wanted to be sure to get the goods i was after not be told i could'nt have it because not enough people wanted the goods, the first thing i said when it changed was " they will be bankrupt within the month " . i need say no more

thanks the pics are gr8

It was obvious that things were going bad ,from some time ago, the phone charges,and high postal charges were to my mind the main reasons for going bust,would put money on tesco going then same way,they are ok with bread and cakes but the other things are too dear and they will lose out to aldi if they don't lower their prices,put money on it!!!!
