Hi my name's Lisa.   My partner and I are in the process of buying a small property in Caniles in the Baza area of Granada Province, with a view to renovating it and eventually moving to area in the next 5 years or so.   Fingers crossed everything will be finalised this week!

I was imagining what things I'd miss from home the other day and thought I would probably miss my regular suppy of Boots No7 Protect & Perfect, Clinique foundation, the odd grocery staple from the supermarkets and good old M&S, especially at Christmas, and thinking what a pain it would be to constantly nag the kids to send stuff to me.   I had a good look at online shops who will send goods to Spain and thought they were quite limited.   I also noticed that, Boots, Superdrug, M&S and the supermarkets won't send to Europe online.

Anyway, it got me thinking and I wondered, as the silly season is nearly upon us, whether anyone out there would like me to do some personal shopping for them?  I have a small B&B in Cornwall and am always out and about buying supplies and my partner has a small business and uses couriers to send things to Europe already, so we are in a great position to send parcels out for very little money. 

I'll leave the thought with you and felt this would be a great way for me to build contacts and maybe make some new friends!

Hi Lisa

this is a great idea, though M&S do deliver in Spain for £7.00 per order and most of the Drogerias sell Clinique and some even sell Boots skin care products though I am not sure how the prices compare with the UK so your option might be cheaper.

How often do you plan to do trips from the UK to Spain? As I need a regular delivery from Murcia to the North East of England.
