Thanks for that everyone. I was wondering the same thing myself. By the time I get to the top of the stairs my lovely PJs are round my ankles.

Sorry if you are eating your tea. M :-0

We loved Woollies for their pick & mix .They seemed to have sweets we couldnt find elsewhere & their Winter mixture s were great especially loved the mauve striped ones and the brown stripy one too.

They did really lovely liquorice rolls and sherbert dib dabs

Mouth watering just at the thought , But at least the waist line isnt getting bigger on phantom sweets.

I really miss Woolies for all the above mentioned and also
Ladybird children's vests and pants, they lasted ages.

Woolies was the place to go for shoe dye,fabric dye,bra extenders,pick and mix sweets, kitchen utensils, Christmas lights,batteries,loose biscuits, slab cake, roasted peanuts and cashews,Saturday jobs.

Sue - I live in South London and hate markets with a vengeance (Sorry!)

But am also limited with how far I can walk, so I needs to be somewhere I can park near or buy online.

But SiL shops regularly in Wilkinsons so may even ask her to have a quick look for me next time she goes.

Many thanks again.

Yes sorry should have put it in full Wilkinsons. You will have to hunt round for it or ask someone as not easy to find. :-D

Now that Woollies are no longer around where on earth can you buy this stuff.

I have pyjamas which need new waistband, I need 1/2" elastic, can I find it online?


Why should I throw away a perfectly good pair of jimjam bottoms just because I cannot replace the elastic!!!!!
