    Why are american guests like Jennifer Kirk, only on air for a couple of hours a visit these days. Years back i remember when Guests came over from America, Jennifer, Suzi B, Dennis B, etc, would grace our screens for 3 to 4 days with like 2 2 hour segments a day.

    These days the only guests who seem to do that, are the gorgeous Kim Mendelson and Ralph Rossini

    I really like some of the KF stuff, although granted some of it is a bit Butler and Wilson. The nicer bits really are lovely though. I wouldn't pay nearly 180 in for a windchime in my wildest dreams even if I had it to spend, but I do think they look nice. It's weird, half the range seems to be fairly reasonably priced and the other half astronomical. Baffled.

    I was in Brighton last week and saw some windchimes in a shop in Sydney Street / Kensington Gardens.

If you want a wind chime QVC sell many fr more reasonably priced alternatives for 10-15. Personally I can't see the point in lining the pockets of Ms Kirk. I have nothing particularly against this whimsical old bag her or her products but I don't quite see what the additional 150 that i would pay for a windchime elsewhere would buy me. She seems to think that hurling glitter at a camera is spreading love and light into the world. Not it isn't, it's making her look like a stupid cow! Still, what's one man's meat is another man's poison and I've no doubt that there are countless devoted, dotty old bints all queuing up to buy this trash. Were it me, I would take a flight to Barcelona and have a weekend away. Maybe the men in white coats will one day drag her off screen, but this time she will blow pepper dust in their eyes, kick them in the 'nads and then sod off to her home that is no doubt adorned with countless cheesey cherubs, pewter pixies resplendent with Aurora Borealis and other ghastly artefacts!
    But her house is apparently that astoundingly beautiful property that appears on some of the KF trailers and I bet it most certainly isn't full of cheap tat but very expensive items all paid for by the vulnerable people that believe the fairy/guardian angel stuff. Now, I am not ridiculing that at all because if that brings people comfort then that's a good thing. What isn't a good thing is exploiting it.

    I just about choked on my large glass of wine when I saw that wind chime and I even had to drag OH away from his computer cricket, just as he was about to win the Ashes single handedly, to view that astoundingly outrageous price. Please tell me no one paid that - our local Ali's Cave has very similar for 4.99.

    Anyone who buys that stuff doesn't get the hint...

    It's called Kirk's FOLLY.. ;)

    It would be a Folly to buy any of that stuff. Just switch off when I see the intro, or find myself mid-show..

    Now I'm not into fairies and guardian angels. I do have a much loved fairy that takes pride of place at the top if my christmas tree every year, and a little fairy garden ornament that hides in my garden. I once bought a kirks folly necklace that was in last clicks as a gift for my neice. It was christmas cracker quality, worse than cheap high street costume jewelery. I sent it back in disgust. I would never buy any of that brand again, even if I liked the look of the item on air- because having seen the shocking quality I am appalled at the prices charged for it.

    My Mum still uses the same angel on her Christmas tree from when I was a little girl WG. It's had a few new dresses and wings on it over the years. Being of a certain age it's lasted quoted well!. Back to topic I certainly wouldn't pay that much for a wind chime, but each to their own.
