DE HOLLANDSE WINKEL: DUTCH GROCERIES

I discovered a Dutch grocery store DE HOLLANDSE WINKEL or La Tienda Holandesa purely by accident. I was just wandering around the shops in Carihuela and found it in a side street. They offered many Dutch goodies like chocolate hagelslaag, pinda kaas, Dutch cookies, cheeses and vleeswaren. I bought Hans a box of chocolate hagelslaag (2,35 Euros) and rolls of Kings peppermints (,69 Eurocents each ). They were a little pricey as compared to buying them in Holland but they are after all imported.

Flea Market in Arroyo de la Miel

VARIOUS STALLS: FLEA MARKET IN ARROYO DE LA MIEL

Friday February 4, 2011
My friend Fina and I took the train to ARROYO DE LA MIEL (Euros 2,00 return) for the Friday Flea Market. It was huge. Everything from clothing to leather goods, flowers, fruits and vegetables.
As it was a beautiful, sunny day, it was very busy there. Fina and I enjoyed walking around the market and mostly snooping. I did buy Hans a nice, new leather hip pack for 5,00 Euros (which I haggled down from 7 Euros). I also bought some cute white socks which was 1,50 Euros for a three-pack. I did buy some delicious and HUGE oranges, which were 1,00 Euro for a Kilo. They were absolutely juicy.


What to buy: There was lots to choose from - leather goods, clothing for adults and children, blankets, table cloths, souvenirs, pottery, candy and nuts, fruits and vegetables, flowers, etc.

What to pay: Don't be afraid to haggle and don't always accept the first price. Have in mind what you want to pay and stick to it.

Address: Fairgrounds in Arroyo de la Miel

Directions: From the train station go left and turn right at the restaurant selling churros. then walk up the hill and you will see the flea market.

BAZAR CEYCE: SPANISH SOUVENIRS

I love to snoop in souvenir shops in Torremolinos. CEYCE was a great little shop as I was looking for gifts to bring back home and I needed some post-cards for my scrapbook. They were selling here for the very reasonable price of .15 Eurocents, which is pretty good. They also had the usual pottery plates and mugs, colourful Spanish fans, Torremolinos T-shirts for children, etc. etc.

Address: C/San Miguel, 64 Torremolinos

Directions: Also have a shop at C/Las Mercedes, 20 Torremolinos - tel:952 381 739

ROMERO SANCHEZ: TORREMOLINOS SOUVENIRS ( REGALOS )

I just loved shopping and snooping on Calle San Miguel. So much variety . As I was looking for some souvenirs ( regalos ) to bring home to Canada, I stopped in this nice little shop ROMERO SANCHEZ which had a nice stock of souvenirs and reasonably priced too. I picked up a few small 'Olive' dishes. They were so cute. They were terra cotta and had a little pot to put the olive pits in and an even smaller pot to put toothpicks in. The only thing is I should have thought of how heavy they would be in my carry-on. Oh well, I just had Hansi carry it. HeHe!

Calle San Miguel - Torremolinos

Calle San Miguel

VARIOUS SHOPS: CALLE SAN MIGUEL

Torremolinos centre itself offers shops selling everything imaginable with the most famous street being CALLE SAN MIGUEL. This runs from the main street down the hill towards the sea. It is lined with shops and bars and the lower end, becomes a narrow walkway with hundreds of steps to take you down the steep hillside to the beach at the bottom. You do need to be fairly fit to walk up this street and most people walk down and find an alternative way up. There is a lift availabe for those who are unable to make the climb.
I walked up two or three times a week. I do take my time and check out all the little shops on the way up.
