I visited store you've never heard of that's hailed 'little IKEA' – everything's so pretty & cheap, I love their £5 rugs | The Sun
A SAVVY shopper has revealed the "pretty" and little-known homeware store she loves to visit – and it's even nicknamed Little IKEA.
Luna Martin regularly shares her shopping hauls with her army of 55,000 followers on TikTok (@lunahtic).
In a recent video, she was in Glasgow and couldn't resist a trip to one of her favourite shops in the St Enoch Centre.
"The stuff in here is so pretty, you will not even be able to comprehend it", she said.
"If you like arts and crafts, this is a dangerous place for you."
The shop in question is Søstrene Grene, renowned for its Scandinavian style and 'hygge' home decor.
The family-owned retailer currently operates more than 260 stores in 15 countries worldwide.
But with only 15 of those stores in the UK, there's a good chance you've not heard of it before.
Luna gushed: "There is just so much to choose from, and it's all really aesthetic.
"This bit is my weakness, the stationary. My goodness.

"And it just smells like natural wood in here. Because everything is, like, wooden.
"It totally suits my beige, natural, earth tone aesthetic. Not that I necessarily have an aesthetic, but there's definitely colours I prefer.
"And if you like pink and cutesy things, then you are gonna find that here.
"They are super reasonable as well. £5.98 for a rug? That's madness.
"And of course, in a place like this, they have to sell wicker baskets."
Picking up a cute heart-shaped box, Luna added: "I don't even need this, but it's £2.78, so I'm gonna take it.
"It's just such a really nice shop to shop in.
"And because of the way that it's laid out, you're always 1uite on your own.
"You know, you've just got time to browse. It's nice. You don't feel like there's a bunch of people.
"So, yeah, definitely. If you're in St Enochs in Glasgow, go and give it a little visit.
"Most of the things in there would suit the vibe of my home."
Søstrene Grene was created by sisters Anna and Clare in 1973 with the aim of bringing ‘beauty to everyday life’.
The home accessories and lifestyle brand is full of affordable furniture, kitchenware, home accessories, wellbeing, stationery, toys and much more.
The brand prides itself on setting prices that are never higher than they need be.
Bargains shown on the website start from just 22p (an eraser) although the 40p taper candles available in 14 colours may prove more popular with home interior fans.
After watching Luna's video, many social media users were stunned to hear about the shop.
One said: "Omg it’s so cheap?"
A second wrote: "I had no idea they were in the UK. Stumbled across them in Copenhagen and spent two hours in there."
Meanwhile, a third added: "I need to go next time I visit the city. I haven’t seen this shop before."
And others who already swear by it backed up Luna's review.
