When I think of shopping channels, my mind goes immediately to those tv ones where a giggly woman is trying to show off the products in front of her with aplomb whilst desperately trying to read the autocue. They’re usually so awful that it’s hilarious, rather like watching one of those spoof tv outtake shows. I was watching one on sewing the other morning – waiting for something else to come on in a few minutes. It was so awful, it was absorbing. However, the point of this exercise is to mention that amid all the rubbish are some really very good online sites where absolutely anything can be obtained – it might take a little dedicated rummaging amongst the search features – we don’t all call everything by the same name. That is evident when looking up bakeware and cooking stuff. I have surfed and sourced some incredible bargains in recent weeks. Just takes practice.
