A couple of weeks ago I was invited to the opening of the new Smiggle store in Birmingham’s Bullring Shopping Centre
What is Smiggle I hear you say? Smiggle was born in Australia 11 years ago and this year they branched out to the UK with Birmingham being one of their new UK locations.
They are essentially a stationery store that provides all the tools you need to be creative, have fun, whilst giving excellent value for money!
When I entered their new store, I felt like a kid in a candy shop, quite literally with there macaroon, cake and fast food shaped rubbers! I looked really weird standing there smelling their scented pencils, but boy they were good, especially the cookie scented ones!
The store was so colourful and I didn’t know where to look first! The best thing is that they change their stock every 6 weeks so there is always something new to look at and add to your collection.
I managed to pick up a few stocking fillers whilst I was there and was kindly given one of their Advent Calendars, which is pretty good considering is the 1st December tomorrow and I am still yet to get one for myself! Hopefully, you will see more on the advent calendar throughout December.
Smiggle is perfect for children of all ages, along with anyone who has a penchant for all things bright and colourful! My sister, for one, will be benefiting from some of the goodies I picked up, as she is a self-confessed stationery addict, and let me tell you, with a Smiggle on my doorstep and I can see myself fast becoming a Smiggler too!!
