To be fair that shopping centre is still in the 1970's

I'd well believe it.

Showing my age however when I was in short pants, this and Northside where the only shopping centres going. Getting to go upstairs to the toyshop was a rare treat.

Remember it well. We had relatives living in Baldoyle & we used to pop in there occasionally, remember getting some die cast metal battleships in that upstairs toy shop (convinced its moved unit though, always remember it being were the upper floor of Dunnes is now) when i was about 7 or 8... its one of my earliest memories now. Amazing how much you forget as you get older.

Never liked Northside SC.

Haven't been inside in years. I have a vague memory of it being in front of the steps when you went upstairs.

Have reconnected with a couple of friends from school who haven't seen in 20+ years. When we chat about 'the old days' its amazing how we all remember different things!

The Northside has had a refurbishment and makeover in the last couple of years.

It's caught up to 1992 now.

So, I decided to plug the tree back in tonight. It's been a mental week so was planning to take it down tomorrow but had plugged it out.

Had a crap day in work today, was supposed to be off as it's my birthday but had to go in. So I'm being nice to me tonight and I wanted to plug the tree in, so I did

Celebrations tub €1.50 (dated February)
Elite teacakes tin €3
Tubes sweets (jelly tots, buttons etc) 57c
225g Butler's chocolates €2.12 (dated September so great presents)

Had other stuff too but didn't purchase those so not sure of the prices
