The Twitter view on the M&S Penny Bazaar
If there’s one thing Twitter is good for, it’s taking the pulse of an event as it’s happening and hundreds of the site’s users have been tweeting about the M&S Penny Bazaar that began this morning.
For those not in the know, as a 125th anniversary treat, M&S have returned to their original roots and are bunging out 20 different products for 1p each, with a maximum of five per customer.
It’s on for three days with all proceeds going to charity; but if the response of the Twitter community is anything to go by, you shouldn’t have any problem browsing it by Friday morning. Here’s some of the best tweets, delivered in chronological order… and you can see some more views on the bizarre Bazaar at the HotUKDeals forum.
[samanthabandak] Walked past M&S just before 8am this morning - there were already about 100 people queuing up for the Penny Bazaar!
[FranieFrouFrou] wonders if people queuing realise that the Penny Bazaar at M&S only applies to a few select items, pack of knickers, bag of sweets etc
[iangclark] After 45min got to the front of M&S Penny Bazaar queue - worth it in the end. Nearly gave up...but waited.
[BlackSheepWales]Whatever u do don't go to the M&S 125 yrs penny bazaar sale. There's nothing worth having unless u want a frizzbe or a can of ginger beer.
[weecuppatea] There's a queue the length of Glassford St waiting for M&S to open for their penny bazaar promo, like a blue-rinsed dawn of the dead
[maschaa] en waarom is er geen M&S penny bazaar in Nederland?! Alle kleding van M&S voor 1 penny, zal wel een gekkenhuis zijn daar!
[katelv] Is the M&S Penny Bazaar everywhere? I'm in Doncaster today. There's no way I'm fighting Doncastrian women.
[TimeWasting] Sent my husband to M&S to investigate the penny bazaar. He wasn't impressed and came back with nothing.
[EmmaLoodle] Penny Bazaar's usually are just random stuff. Remember... It's not just a garage sale, it's an M&S garage sale!
[JonnyMackay] went to M&S and couldn't find any evidence of a penny bazaar. except for the sign on the door advertising the event.
[mowallywong] It's hardly an M&S penny bazaar when its starts outside New look and you have to sacrifice a days wage to queue
[twinklyspangle] the M&S penny bazaar was a load of crap - just a small selection of rubbish for a penny and a HUGE queue.
