Psst – last minute stocking fillers
On the downward slope to Christmas but still after a few stocking fillers? Here’s one good place you might have overlooked.
If you shop in Brighton you’ll probably recognise Bert’s Homestores in North Laine (there are two more Brighton/Hove branches besides) but you may not know that at the back, past all the kitchen bits and bobs (some quite fun presents in themselves), is an area with toys, including a heap at stocking filler/pocket money prices.
On the shelves behind are some larger but still reasonably-priced toys a little different from the norm, most under a tenner, some under a fiver.
Many have a retro slant – paper planes, elastic band guns, old fashion games, vintage style packaging and the like.
And there’s the odd more educational idea…
Off you go now to play Santa. Good luck!
