Flying Tiger Store Opening in Birmingham, Selfridges


Flying Tiger Store Opening in Birmingham, Selfridges

The new Tiger Store in Birmingham has arrived! Last week I was invited to the store to have a look around and pick up a few bits in order to celebrate the new opening in Selfridges. The store is located on the first floor (next to Cath Kidston) and is home to all things fun and quirky. Think of it like the Ikea of homeware and stationary!

The store holds a huge range of items to choose from including homeware, games, stationary and much more. I was actually looking for things that would come in useful for my birthday picnic that I plan to host in the next few weeks and after just a few minutes in the store, I was totally inspired. The array of colours and patterns makes it perfect for the fun summer theme I'm going for. From napkins to tablecloths and bunting, this was the perfect place to shop for any summer event you may be hosting. Just the sheer amount of candle choices made my brother a very happy person (he is the biggest candle hoarder ever).

For those of you dreading going back to school, college or university, Tiger have you sorted. I love the selection of stationary and random bits and bobs that will actually make you look forward to shopping for supplies. Just look at the milk carton pencil case and chocolate eraser! You can find a whole load of stuff to prepare you for starting the new term in a somewhat quirky fashion. What's even better is that everything is very inexpensive, making it perfect for a student budget.

I had the chance to pick up a few pieces while I was there and I am more than happy with I chose. First of all, I got a picnic mat (which I used for the background in the pictures above), made out of this wooden/woven material, making it great to take along with you for summer picnics outside. I also thought these lovely flamingo jars (which are totally instagrammable) would also be perfect for outdoor picnics that are totally, as well as this blue plastic woven basket which is perfect to store food in or little trinkets if I wanted to keep it in my bedroom. I also got a few random pieces including a much-needed selfie-stick and a Jenga-like game for those boring summer days. I love the packets of bunting I picked up as well as these fun straws, I think they'd go really well for the colourful theme I seem to be going with! These unscented candles are only £1 and look great when burning on a pretty place. Last but not least were these delicious gummy sweets and a cake stand which I absolutely adore and can't wait to use the next time I bake cupcakes. 

The new store in Selfridges in Birmingham is great and the simple layout makes it easy to navigate and find anything you want. As you can see, I had a picnic event in mind when choosing my products, and I honestly recommend shopping here if you too are holding a little get-together with your friends and family. There are so many bits to choose from, I'm sure you'll be able to find something to brighten up those endless summer days! I actually can't wait to go back and pick up some pieces I may have missed to finalise my upcoming birthday picnic...

Have you ever been to Tiger yourself? If so, leave below your thoughts on the store!
