Tk Maxx haul

A long awaited visit to the TK Maxx in my home town was well over due for this weekend - I don't know what it is about this particular one, but if I'm in the mood for a good rummage I can regularly come out with some great finds and so I did today. Here's what I picked up...




I am an absolute notebook fiend, so as soon as I spotted this yellow pad I couldn't put it down. It's so lovely, like an old school book reinvented in neon. My mum found the photo album and bought it for me to put in my new flat - It's an adorable size and I love the simplicity of it. 



Again with the notebooks, but how absolutely gob smacking lovely is this neon orange book. It's soft leather and the perfect handbag size, it was just too cool to leave behind. I was really attracted to this set of felt tip pens, the packaging really caught my eye and the colour of the pens, they're all subtle brights which is quite unusual to come across. They also double up as ink for stamps which is a bonus.



The actual reason I went into TK Maxx was to get a water bottle and I found this absolute gem. I love the retro design, it's sleek, cool and everything I'd want, I love that it's nice enough to leave out in the kitchen without looking messy. Lastly I picked up this vintage style corn flakes tin, I'm going to use it as a lunch box at Uni, it's just big enough to hold a sandwich and some fruit.

Have you guys found any good bits in TK Maxx recently? I'd love to know...

  6. Great finds, the orange leather one is lovely. I love the stationary bit at tkmaxx and always come out with some kind of notebook. We have a homesense nearby hear which is also great - I found some lovely notecards and notebooks last time I went. x
