¿CONOCES LA PALABRA "TACKY"?
As is the case here in Spain, in the UK there are a wide variety of different shops ranging from very expensive to extremely cheap.
One chain (cadena) of cheap shops that exist in the UK (which I have seen much less in Spain) are called "One Pound shops". These shops generally sell all their items for 99p (pence) or 1 pound. These can be great if you are looking for a cheap solution but in many cases they are a little "tacky". This means that the products are generally a bit low quality and cheap.
So, for example: "This shop is a little tacky" or "The products in here are very tacky".
Hope that helps!
No...please don't read any more...that means that I will have to write some more! :)
