Kmart's 'pretty' homeware buy sends shoppers bananas
Kmart's latest homeware buy that's driving fans nuts is a somewhat surprising one – servingware with a flamingo print.
Taking to a Kmart Facebook group, one user shared photos of the servingware which is available as a bowl, a wooden board, a tray and salad servers.
The post read, "How cute is this new wooden flamingo serve ware," and quickly attracted hundreds of comments from fellow Kmart fans.
One excited fan wrote, "I need these!!!" Another added, "I like this... Kmart trip needed."
"OMG!!!! I have to have them!!" someone else wrote.

One Victorian fan wrote, "Curse you non Victorians, getting to go look at things in Kmart whilst [I'm] stuck drooling over the website."
A fellow Victorian added, "Can't wait to go to Kmart after this covid ends."
Another fan joked, "I just got them. They're for the new house we haven't bought yet."
Someone else added, "I need all of these!"
"I didn’t need it but bought it anyway cause I loved it," one user jokingly added.
Some people suggested the servingware would be perfect for summer barbecues and camping or even just on display.
The range begins at $8 for the salad servers, while the board, bowl and tray are all $12.
Chopping board not meant for chopping?
It comes after another Kmart fan took to a Facebook group to share a confusing label she found on an item.
“There's something wrong here. About this wood chopping board,” the woman wrote alongside the image, which featured a label that read, "Do not use as a chopping board."
The post quickly amassed hundreds of comments from equally confused shoppers.
“The non chopping chopping board?” one person asked.
“Ok, so if it’s not a chopping board what is it?” was another very valid question.
Something a third person also wanted to know: “So what are you supposed to use it for then???”
A Kmart spokesperson told Yahoo Lifestyle this particular product was not sold at Kmart.
Instead it appears to be from UK furniture retailer Dunelm, listed as the manufacturer on the label, though the post still sparked some hilarious responses from Kmart fans.
“It’s 2020 what else do we expect!?” one person quipped.
Others thought it made total sense.
“Must be one of those chopping boards that are just supposed to be for serving food rather than being used for meal prep,” was another comment.
Given the post was shared in a hack group, there were also many who wondered whether the board could yet be ‘saved’.
“Can someone hack this to make a chopping board?” one person joked.
