9th September - Shopping Trip.
OK so its a month since the last update but I did warn you it was holiday time and many of the local villages and towns are in the middle of fiesta season so things moved a bit slowly in August. The good news though is that I have just returned from a fixtures and fittings shopping trip so lots more photos.
The trip was to check out progress, make some decisions and primarily to sort out the furniture and fittings. We now have decisions made on the beds, sofas, tables and chairs, kitchen equipment, wood burning stoves, cooker, fridge, freezer, washing machines, kitchen wall tiles and knives, forks, plates, mugs and pots and pans. They should all be delivered during the first few weeks of October.
So where do you go for all of these, well the road out of Baza towards the motorway has a number of furniture shops and with some careful searching there are some great bargains to be found. The Baza market also proved useful for a number of items we were warned we would need to bring from the UK. In particular a kettle for the gas cooker as we don’t have proper power yet for an electric one. The other places well worth a visit are the large Carrefour and Alcampo in Granada. Great for bedding and kitchenware. The main issue was the lack of single duvets which we are going to have to get in the UK and send out.
Now a few more pictures showing some close-up details of things featured earlier in the site.
