New Favourite Store: TIGER

No it's not a hip new vintage shop or cool fashion boutique. It's an absolute mecca of weird and wonderful shit you never knew you needed. 

I had time to kill whilst waiting for Tottenham Court Road Specsavers to replace the lens in my glasses (my sight's getting worse - yay!) and rather than stress myself out in Primark, I wondered the other way up the road. That's when I saw it. A window full of pretty coloured miscellaneous household items. I knew it was love. 

(I didn't get an exterior shot so here's one I've borrowed)

I'd never even heard of the Copenhagen-born store Tiger but friends from Basingstoke and Watford tell me it's nothing new there - WHY have I not heard of my dream store before now?! 

Here is just some of the weird and wonderful goods this shop sells...

Adorable house storage boxes for £2: 

 Cute gingham tape - a total bargain seeing as most stationery/art shops charge through the roof for 'quirky' tape!

Coloured cotton buds anyone? Effing up your liquid eyeliner has never been so fun to correct!

Definitely didn't know I needed a tube squeezer until they made a lip shaped one...

500 million candles and pretty serviettes!

 All the spices ever, because why not?!

Babushka pepper mill!!! Devo'd I didn't buy this - went back today and it was gone.

Everything just has such a cute illustrated aesthetic to it, it's lovely!

Typography cups and pretty tea/coffee cannisters! 

Classic Tiger merchandising - no two objects are similar! Letter magnets, moustache stamps and a solar powered heart. Brilliantly random. 

Loved these so much I bought a couple when I went back today!


They even sell uber functional items like Ethernet cables and every type of glassware your kitchen could need - for ridiculously cheap prices!

Crazy scandi-candy!

Random condiments and sauces...

The illustrated greetings cards were probably the most bizarre items - nothing says happy birthday quite like a nervous looking person wearing earphones or an old man in Y-fronts! Amazing.

On top of all that there's the most insane amount of stationery and crafty items! 

I mean, isn't it the most insanely bizarre yet awesome store in the world?! 

Wish they had an online store but maybe it's for the best they don't... At least you can check for your nearest store on their site, though! Do it. Your life will be better. 

Are you a Tiger fan? Know any other stores that sell cheap and crazy stuff? Do share!!

  2. Oh my gosh, I didn't realise this store existed in the UK! I was in Copenhagen last weekend and went into one of their stores over there - it was amazing. So pleased to see they have them in the UK. No where up North for me though :-(

  15. Boo. We don't have Tiger in France yet. We have a Dutch store, though, that's quite similar- HEMA. They even have their own skincare and cosmetics, which are actually not too bad!

  19. This is such a weird store, I don't know how it works. We went in the Brighton one and ended up with all sorts of crap that we didn't need but has enhanced our lives a smidge. Including a giraffe that looks like a llama.

  22. There's one near me in North London and I bloody love it, so many random things there. I couldn't resist the cotton buds. >_<

  23. Tiger! We have them everywhere in Denmark.. and here the name makes sense because when it first started out everything costed 10 dkkr. And in danish we have a slang for 10 danish kroners, which is "tier" [tiåhr] and so I guess they thought Tiger sounded a lot like it.

    But yeahr, been in Denmark for long, love it too. :) Love your post about growing out short hair btw, am about to venture into that at the moment.

  24. Aaaw Tiiiiger! I thought I was safe from spending all my money when I moved back from the UK to Italy. Oh how wrong. A couple of months later Tiger opened in Italy and of course, one is just 10 minutes from my house ! Joy and sorrow at the same time ;D

  25. The looks like the greatest shop ever! Possibly better than Ikea!

  26. I'm a massive fan of this shop, I always go in and come back out with a bagful of amazing crap that I didn't need but was just TOO good to leave behind! xxx

  27. I first discovered Tiger a few years back when they opened a store in Stratford shopping centre (not Westfield). I always found it odd that they popped such a nice kitsch home store in what wasn't exactly a shopping destination! I've actually just moved flat so need to pop back. Great post and thanks for the reminder :-)

  32. I love the Brighton store! I have bought stuff in there that I know I won't use that often but couldn't be without like heart shaped lights and sailor tattoo plasters! The only thing I regret not getting from there was this punch and judy style puppet theatre. I hope they do it this year!
