Hello from Bulle!

Hello!

I have just moved to Bulle, and am a student here. ...so this is my introduction

I am from London, and have visited Switzerland twice previously... life here will be different I'm sure... still finding my feet, and getting used to the different rules and way things work here!

I'm just wondering, I know there is a Swiss eBay (ebay.ch) but this is primarily for the German speaking Swiss. If I want to use a French version, I'm redirected to ebay.fr, which I don't mind... but for some items such as fridges and bicycles for example, these are more practically purchased in Switzerland, local to me in either the cantons of Fribourg or Vaud. I used to use eBay a lot in the UK for buying things cheap, so what are suitable Swiss used-item website alternatives?

I would like to buy a used bicycle for my stay here, so where is the best place to look for that? I may consider travelling down to Montreux/Vevey if it's easier!

Thank you!

Re: Hello from Bulle!

Hi Cris,
I too have just joined this forum yestreday altho have been aware of it for years as wifie is an addict!

If looking for a bike try the following- I was looking for one recently for my daughter and found a few decent ones on the following sites-
There is also really good bike shop in Bulle called Pythoud's-they may occasionally have second hand bikes.

www.anibis.ch
http://www.petitesannonces.ch/
http://www.annonces-romandie.ch/

There are also regularly second hand bike auctions/ sales( called bourse à vélo in french) held throu'out Swizerland by this organisation, I went to one a couple of months ago and the prices were reasonable for good bikes

good luck
