Now I had never been to a shop opening and yes I do secretly judge those who queue up for a silly amount of time just to look around a shop! But I love how pretty Cath Kidston designs are and it’s my week off so why now!
For those of you who don’t know what Cath Kidston is, it is basically a shop full of beautiful bags, purses, accessories, homeware and stationery! They market themselves as modern vintage and that is exactly what they are!
The store opening I went to was at Gloucester Quays, which is my local designer outlet! So let’s have a look at what I got!
I am an absolute sucker for cute stationery so that is the first place I headed! I picked up two notebooks, a pencil case and a book-shaped tin! I also picked up a little ticket holder!
Next up is homeware! I always say you can never have too many mugs so I bought two!!!
Now as it was a store opening there were obviously goodie bags! The first 200 people to spend over £25 got some lovely freebies and here is what I was given!
The store opening was amazing and I can’t wait to spend some more money on payday! The only thing I will say is that crowd control did not exist, in future, the Quays really need to only let a certain amount of people in at a time. It quickly got to the point where you couldn’t move and the only way for you to get around the store was to join the queue.
Let me know what your favourite item, from my little haul, was!
