Re: The "I found a deal/bargain" thread...

Discovered this second -hand art and craft supply place:


https://www.offcut.ch/zh/de.html


They have lots of fabric, beads, wool, wood, tiles, etc etc etc. great if you are crafter or artist... or preschool teacher



Prices were very reasonable for a second-hand place...


And this Brockenhaus is the cheapest I have found in Zurich:

https://www.brockisiril.ch/


picked up some coloured paper and cardboard, and plenty of bric-a-brac and some enamelled 'cloisonne' style items...just be warned, it's quite a mess... they are seriously not interested in the actual value of anything, just as long as it's coming and and going out the door... but things are generally classified into areas... Two bags full of stuff. 20chf.



Brocki-land is very high turnover this week. Don't go there if you want to social distance... people are 'trying' but it's crazy...

Re: The "I found a deal/bargain" thread...

Not a deal per se but I have been looking for this for a while. Four or five years ago a colleague introduced us to a professional stain removing / pre-treatment product for clothes called EsaCol from Diversey. At the time it was available from Aligro.

Fast forward, it was no longer stocked when we ran out and asked at Aligro. Looked elsewhere but no luck. Yesterday I was in our local Aligro and they had it again in a 750ml spray bottle for just under CHF 10.- (see photos).

This products works miracles and it has saved many a shirt.
