My local hardware has these sack needles. Straight or with a bend. He also has anchors for small boats.

2 euro shops have them. I found some in my "random assortment" drawer the other night.

I've been looking for Gram flour for ages, its not particularly 'old fashioned', I could buy it in Tesco till about a year or so ago. Been in all the local Asian shops - blank looks. Chickpea flour? 'Oh yes, no we don't have any. I could have some for you by next week', but it never seems to come in.

I could give in and buy it online I suppose.

A spare tyre for a new car I purchased (used car), and "throw a decent tyre in the boot, yeah"?


Space savers be damned.

You should be able to get them in Dunnes or Tescos. They're on their own sales stands by the company with yellow and blue/black packaging. With all the other little "things" - nail clippers, hem tape etc.


Korbond is the name of the company I think.

Had terrible trouble looking for a soap dish for bathroom for bar of soap.

Got the last one in a not busy chemist shop.
