Smoking bin? Receipt rolls? Pick 'n' Mix bags? Anyone?

Woolworths Shop

Am I alone in that, genuinely, a few times a year, I'll need something and think, 'I bet Woolworths would have that'?

Woolworths closed its final 199 shops in the UK on 6 January, 2009, so has been out of our lives for over 11 years. And yet still I crave popping in there, getting some pick 'n' mix, checking out some CD singles and the latest selection of knick-knacks while my mum picks up next term's school uniform.

But, should you really be having a nostalgic yearning for Woolies, we've got good news for you. On eBay there is a LOT of random Woolworth merch to be found. Whether you'll actually want to buy it or not... we'll leave that with you.

If you though 5p was expensive for a plastic bag, why not pay £4.99 for one? The irony of the 'Well Worth It' logo on this bag is very much lost on the seller we expect...

There are actually a lot of pictures of old Woolworths buildings (today and in 90s yesteryear) available on eBay, but this one wins for being THE BACK of a FORMER store.

Undoubtedly the best thing about Woolworths was the Pick 'n' Mix and there are a lot of different bags and cups available on ebay - this one was our era and really gives us a craving for a sticky strawberry lace that 68 people have already touched.

Why have a receipt when you can have your very own till roll? THAT is the question.

Why not totally mess with someone's head by sending them a letter from 20 years ago, saying they've won a competition to meet Liberty X at the St Ives Woolworths? Actually, that's funny, that is worth £1.99.

You know what's better than sex? Chocolate. And you know what's better than chocolate? Some chocolate bar packaging for some own-brans chocolate without the actually chocolate.
