    Lots of interesting stuff out this morning at Bunnings. (Sorry no photos, brain was still turned off)

    8 types of santa inflatables. Between $59 and $89 mark. All look good. I got the DJ santa as it seemed appropriate, guessing everyone will have/want one of these if you do inflatables.

    Lots of different lights, but no interesting bulbs, wireframes, or whatnot that jumped out at me to convert to RBG.

    Only red & white rope lights, no green or blue at this stage. I think these ones are last years stock TBH.

    Cheers,
    Rowan

    The guys at the local store said they received 40 palettes a couple of days ago. Looked like a lot of items that I don't recall seeing there last year.

    Went tonight and they had all their stock & prices out. By far the largest range they've had for quite a few years.


    800 LED for 69.90
    600 LED for 49.90


    A few decent sized wireframes.


    Most/All stuff seemed to be low voltage AC powered, with some solar based junk too. Don't think there was much 240V stuff now.


    Unfortunately that 5M LED strip is 2 channel and only tiny 3528 LEDs too.

    I've been a bit slow......went into Oxenford Bunnings last week and they were just starting to put out their main Christmas light stock.

    The only blow-up on display was Santa in a Combi Van - asked the lady setting up the display and she was kind enough to show me the piccies in the stock book and let me take a couple of piccies.

    DJ Santa:

    Santa in a Truck:

    Apparently DJ Santa is $89.95 and Oxenford is only allocated about six of them, so supply seems fairly limited. They were expecting to have their full stock display up in another week.

    Quite a lot of the lights that were already on display were solar.

    Cheers!

    Our Bunnings has their stuff out (about a week earlier than normal I thought). A couple of different types of LED "cherry blossom" trees this year, they were about $60 I think, but only about 10 of each in stock. Heaps of solar stuff too.
