Hi, does anyone know of a good source for garden pots of all shapes and sizes, I can get them in the uk at my cheapy shop at quite a good price, but I don't want to bring them all the way over taking up room if you can buy them just as cheap in 22, My uk example of a set of three ( you know one inside the other type) quite a large size, and coloured, costing £15.00, have you seen a better price, and where, please. Divaling.

I have just bought a property in France and need to equip it with a microwave oven.  Would it be better to to buy this in UK or France?  Is there the same choice and are they a similar price in France?  Would there be any problem with the slight difference in voltage?  The same question applies to electric blankets.  I have heard that English TVs are not satisfactory in France. rosa

I bet it's ben asked before, but do I need to buy a new tv when we move over, our old one in the UK is just about holding on, sure I read that the french tv is a different system of lines. So, do we buy new when we come over. Thanks Divaling.

Spent a wasted afternoon on the internet trying to find a tap supplier. The problem is that because of the present plumbing setup and the new granite sink worktop I need taps that fit on the wall not the top itself. At present the taps are wall mounted but old and ugly (a bit like me). Any suggestions of a good shop or plumbers that may have what I am after? Willing to travel from Roscoff area to south coast and same distance east to west. Ray

Can anyone recommend a good place to find kitchen units? So far the ones Ive found on the internet are far more expensive than places in the UK such as B&Q but Im sure cheaper places must exist? Also I need a lot of electrical goods, cooker, fridge, microwave, etc etc.... is there a good place to go which is excellent value? I'll be living in St Guyomard not far from Vannes.Thanksjenny & stuart
