    various - usually with ' pound' in: it won't cost you much - a quid

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Skegness must have the world's highest concentration of pound shops :

    i.e "Don't ask the price - everything's a pond, Duck".

    It makes you ponder where they source this stuff from. Who I wonder in some mad fit of over enthusiam decided to triple an order for pink bogbrushes in the shape of cat, and then found that they didn't sell too well.

    At least all this means you can build up your collection of truly awful Kitsch gifts. E-mail with your worst - I would be interested to know.

    Please note that anyhing vaguely useful will be made out of a special material only used in poundshops and will self destruct exactly three minutes after you start using it for the first time at home.

    What to buy: A train ticket to leave

    A Hat to hide your identity

    Creams for those worrying infections
    (see tip on nightclubs)

    What to pay: £1 obviously

    Market at Fantasy Island: Largest market in Europe (so they claim)

    The claim may be that this is the largest market in Europe, but you must remember that they also add the words 'seven days'.

    There must, therefore be many markets that are much larger than this rambling collection of odd 'n' sods, but don't go out on the 'flog' everyday.

    What to buy: Same complete C**P that you will find all over Skegness. It's just here that you have the added advantage of standing in the cold in a windswept car-park dealing with 'dodgy geasers' feeding the black economy.
