Fair play to Matalan, every now and then they sneak some pretty good stuff into their homeware range – and at pocket money prices too. Brand new in store is this fantastic set of printed melamine dishes with side plates costing only £1.50, dinner plates £2 and the trays £7.
There is also vivid, Moroccan style al fresco tableware which includes a large serving platter at just £5.
For an elegant picnic, the cool bag below is £5, the ‘crystal’ plastic wine glasses are £3 each and the square lantern is £12. The range also includes coloured goblets, scatter cushions and blankets.
As well as these nice seasonal items, there are some attractive year round products like the porcelain teapot below which costs £8. It’s not all good, but some of it is great.
