This is a question Cheap Tat

OneEyedMonster remindes us about the crap you can buy in pound shops: "Batteries that lasted about an hour and then died. A screwdriver with a loose handle so I couldn't turn the damn screw, and a tape measure which wasn't at all accurate."

Similarly, my neighbour bought a lawnmower from Argos that was so cheap the wheels didn't go round, it sort of skidded over the grass whilst gently back-combing it.

What's the cheapest, most useless crap you've bought?

I live in north London
It's referred to as "Pahndlahnd" here.

I live in South London
It is also referred to as "Pahndland". But with the suffix "innit". Or, sometimes, if the local youths are feeling particularly loquacious, "Pahndlandriiiiight".

I got a lovely washing basket from the Walthworth Road a few months ago. I wasn't particularly tempted by the sets of chef's knives or "sterling silver" dining sets though. They were bendy.

A while ago now but...
there used to be a QD ("Quality Discounts" - Oh yes!) in the Grafton Centre. I don't know if it's still there.

Bought a Christmas tree there about 12 years ago - it's still going strong.

Went pop years ago, Robert Sayle relocated there while everything on Regent Street was being knocked down and rebuilt, Haven't been down that end of town for a few months so not sure whats there now, think there was a plan to compartmentalise it into lots of subunits.
