Does anyone remember the Boxing day sales? People would be queuing from Christmas day. The stores would have just a few items drastically reduced, maybe three , three piece suites and a couple of beds. They really were bargains for the first couple of people. No, we never did that. We did once buy a goose down duvet from the house of Fraser, it was a double extra long. One lady tried to wrestle it out of hubs arms!!! Only one problem, the covers were more expensive than the duvet. We finished going into Brentford Nylons (anyone remember that shop) and bought two polycotton sheets, a double and a single. They were classed as seconds and didn't cost very much. Together, they made a duvet cover and two pillowcases. I think that we were more thrilled with bargain cover than the duvet.
