Oliver Bonas comes to Manchester

oliver bonas manchester shop review and preview

The title of the post is a little untrue, because Oliver Bonas arrived in Manchester a few months ago. Situated in Piccadilly Train Station. Small but perfectly formed as they say.

And it is- I just wanted more! It seems I got my wish..

The branch I’m taking about, I feel marks the true arrival of Oliver Bonas in Manchester. This place is huge. It’s three floors of OB goodness.

This post is photo heavy, but I really wanted to share this shop with you.

It is the biggest Oliver Bonas store yet. Stocking virtually everything you can buy online. The furniture and home stuff is always so colourful and cheerful. They also having a growing beauty range and the fashion and accessories products are just the right amount of quirky.

The fashion and interiors patterns and colours really do crossover in Oliver Bonas, and I saw lots of my predicted  Terrazzo pattern in here.

I wish I’d had time for a longer look around, there is seriously so much good stuff. I always prefer to buy in real life as opposed to the internet. I know the convenience of web shopping is hard to beat, but for me being able to smell, touch, try on, try out things before buying them cant be be knocked.

I think you also can get styling ideas when shopping IRL too, the merchandisers might put something together you’d have never thought of. And you can build a cohesive look for your home or your wardrobe.

This cacti is fake!! So much kinder for households with kids eh…?

I’ll be asking for Oliver Bonas gift vouchers for every birthday from now on I’m sure.

I also did a quick video- I clearly need to get more under my belt, but we all have to start somewhere right?

Would you like to see more video from me? Do let me know in the comments.

 

Oh and if you are from Manchester, please don’t blame me for your spending when you visit the new OB!!

  1. Oh wow, THREE floors??! So excited it’s arrived just before me – I used to live around the corner from the original Fulham Rd store and it’s the best for gifts (for yourself, and others!) xx

  2. You are so lucky to have a huge store! We have a tiny one in Brighton but that doesn’t stop me spending a ton in there. I love OB lighting and their colour pop styling. Loving all the pictures, making me want to go shopping.
