I had never been to DLP during the January sales before so I had high hopes for it, especially as I had heard that they were bringing in a lot of new merchandise this year due to the five year turnover and 25th anniversary. I went armed with extra money so I could go crazy. Myself and my friend Louise arrived the day after the sales started so we managed to avoid the rush. I didn’t fancy having to fight people for items, that’s just not how I roll.
Unfortunately due to my high expectations I was a little disappointed with the sales. Some shops had small stands of sales items and a few had none at all. There were a few things that I had hoped would be in the sales but weren’t but I was paricularly pleased with the clothing items which I hadn’t initially thought about buying but did. I also understand that arriving a day later meant that we had missed out on a few things. I had my eye on the mini figure Yoda Stitch but couldn’t find him when we were there.
It was a good thing that there wasn’t as much as I had thought 1. Because I would just buy a ton of things that I didn’t need 2. I wouldn’t have been able to get it all home. The things that I did find were a real bargain and all in all I was very happy with what I picked up.
Grey Pirates of the Caribbean ride t-shirt had 70% off (originally €21.99). Reduced to €6.59 (I payed €5.27 with my AP). The hoodie was also 70% off (originally €44.99). Reduced to €13.49 (I payed €10.79). These are really comfy items, the hoodie is very cosy.
Pink Cheshire cat sweater 70% off (originally €49.99). Reduced to €14.99 (I payed €11.99). Grey Beast sweater 70% off (originally €49.99). Reduced to €14.99 (I payed €11.99). I love anything Beauty and the Beast and I’m also a fan of Alice in Wonderland so I was so happy when I saw these.
Keep an eye out for my January trip reports.
