Good morning everyone, Does anyone know of a chimney sweep within a reasonable distance of Scaer (29). I have found a couple on Angloinfo and also in Page Jaunes but they are quite far away from us. I am going to have a chat with my neighbour this afternoon but thought I would try you lot as well!! Thanks Angela
Hi all, 3 weeks to go before our move from Spain to 56, and we are buying a ''few bits and pieces'' to bring with us. My question is :- What is the situation regarding buying paint in France e.g Acrylic gloss and emulsion in colours. If choice and cost is a problem, we will bung a couple of cans in the caravan.!! 18 'till the day I die !
Hi All! Our house in 22 built about 1982 has a very good quality kitchen. However,it needs modifying(expanding) to our requirements and I would prefer not to do away with the existing units. We would need some extra units, and I doubt if we would still find matching units (typical French dark farmhouse style), so I thought maybe we could replace just the doors etc, and buy a few extra units as well. We did this in the UK using B&Q mix and match, where you buy the carcass units and choose your own doors & drawers etc, I replaced all the cupboard & drawer fronts, keeping the carcasses. So.....has anyone else done this in France, does anyone have knowledge of outlets that will sell doors/drawerfronts etc. I really don't want to start a new kitchen from scratch, I have tried a search but did not answer my specific question. Regards, Rob
Can anyone help with my bizarre request?! I'm looking to buy jars in bulk/wholesale, ranging from small spice jars to large pickling jars & no matter which search engine I try, I can't find suppliers here in France anywhere. Where could I look from here? You must be able to buy them from somewhere & I'm not prepared to pay the prices in the supermarkets as I'm looking to buy 100's, not the odd pack of six!! I would really appreciate any help or suggestions anyone has. Sarah Ps have tried Metro here - no good & I can't seem to find a website for Le Parfait.
Hello all, As the new proud owner of 1 acre of grass I need some advice on ride on mowers. i.e. Which are the best makes? Where are they cheapest to buy? And what accessories should I consider buying? e.g. tow bar etc. All replies gratefully received. Rog P.S. grazing animals are not an option, due to vegetable plot.
Just thought I'd post some advice to anyone looking for an Aga or Rayburn here. First of all, they're really difficult to find second hand here but there are Aga retailers in St Brieuc(22), Lannion(22) & Morlaix(29) if anyone wants a new one. Try www.agafrance.fr Failing that, try www.tradcookers.com That's a chap called Barry who lives in Newbury & specialises in reconditioned ranges & the best bit, he will deliver to Brittany no probs. (Actually, I think he's here in July & August). Or try www.twyford-cookers.com They will also deliver to Brittany. As you can probably tell, I've spent hours on the net finding out this info because I'm looking for a 4-oven Aga in install in our house, so I hope this info can help someone else!! Sarah
We will be at our place in the Loudeac area at the end of July and are wondering if anyone knows how we could buy patio slabs on line and have them delivered? Alternatively, where could we buy them in the Loudeac/Pontivy area and have them delivered in just a few days (so that we have a chance to lay them) and at a reasonable charge? Thanks!John& Ann
