    I'm looking to pick up 2 garlands nice ones and of course other nice bits n pieces.

    I usually pick up a few pieces in the sales as most do but I need a few nice bits this year as one child is really into it this year.

    Is dealz any good or where you advise?

    Many thanks

    Not woodies anyway. I swear they charge ridiculous prices just so they can say they dropped them by 50% in the run up to Christmas. And they are nothing special

    I got those very long thin *pine garlands" that look great along the side of the stairs etc, at Heatons last year for only twelve quid each. They are often 30 in other shops.

    And found lovely little wooden "craft"-y gift tags and tree ornaments in Arnotts.

    Where are you based? In previous years I've found Malahide garden centre to have really good stuff. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Haven't been over in a couple of years though so not sure if it's still as good as it was.

    Hi I'm in Laois so anywhere around an hour away is what I'd drive.
    Thanks

    Found in Heatons at Carrickmines, yesterday

    I think there is a Heatons in many rural towns, though: there's definitely one in Mullingar, also Edenderry, Thurles, Kilkenny, and Maynooth. (just looked at the website)

    In fairness Homestore and More are hard to beat-
    Remember last year going from homestore to woodies next door- same xmas window decorations 4X the price in woodies.

    Also christmas shop just of the N2 well worth a visit for serious decorations and xmas items, decently priced also.
