OAP spends Christmas outside furniture shop

A pensioner spent her entire Christmas camped outside a furniture shop so she could buy a chest of drawers for just £10 (€11.90) when it opened for the sales.

Bargain hunter Brenda Adams set up a camping chair outside Silcox Son & Wicks in Kingsmead Square, Bath, at 4.30pm on Christmas Eve.

The 75-year-old retired midwife waited three days to pick up a chest of drawers reduced from £200 (€238) to £10.

"By my stage of life you've seen every type of Christmas going: happy ones, sad ones, interesting ones and boring ones. I just wanted to do something different," said the mother of two, who had her walking stick stolen by a partygoer during her wait.

"I'm not interested in just sitting around being fed and watered. I like to experience new things."
