This is a question Impulse buys

I'm now the owner of a monster trampoline that's nearly too big for the garden. Tell us your retail disasters and triumphs.

The force was strong with this purchase...
When Attack Of The Clones finished filming in Sydney there was a sale of leftover props and junk from production and somehow through a mate I managed to get in.
The first purchase was a helmet which was apparently worn by an extra in the background of a crowd scene... in other words a motorbike helmet with the visor cut into an interesting shape and a faux breather mask attached to the front.
I ride a motorbike, but was never going to trust this thing with my head. I'm a Star Wars fan but could never really prove this wasn't something I just knocked up in the shed.
In other words it was the proverbial chocolate teapot.
Last weekend after years of looking at it in the cupboard and wondering what on earth I was going to do with it, I gave it to a five year old and he's been wearing it ever since, including sleeping in it.
It is, according to his mum, the single coolest thing he's even owned (for the time being) and he loves it.
Just goes to show I guess.
Oh... the only other thing I bought at the sale was a set of six coat hangers allegedly from Ewan McGregor's trailer.
So I now have six jedi coat hangers... if only I could remember which ones they were.

These are not the coat hangers you are looking for...
But surely you can use the force to find them.
