This ones a long shot.

All my comfort food needs are taken care of by Park n Shop, love that place for drinks, sweets and crisps.

Can get those in most supermarkets, Park & Shop were selling Levi Roots soft drinks for a while too.

I buy sweet potato from Spinneys regularly, Choithrams sell it too. And Geant.

Home Centre

Q Home Interiors
ONE Home Furnishings
Danube Home
@Home
Pier Import
Ace Hardware

All of these places don't have any and their staff have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about.

IKEA has a small selection, but they're mostly ugly, and even then, 75% of the ones they have are broken. Seriously, it looks like they've been used in a football match.

I don't want to buy some big chandelier, or mess about with wiring and drilling holes, it can't be that hard can it?
I would immediately have said Ikea but obviously not.... My first suggestion is Zara Home, opposite The One in Jumeirah but I am not convinced about that so my two suggestions are to trawl the SZR from Ace downwards and also the strip of home furnishing shops on the Zabeel Road near Aarti. In Dubai Mall, you have Bloomingdales and IWannaGoHome and quite a few other stores and there's also Crate and Barrel and Oottery Barn and what about Marina?

I just need some postage stamps! I've tried working out the locations of the post offices from the Emirates Post website but as I'm still fairly new and not very familar with the various areas I've done nothing but confuse myself. And accidently tear my map. Are there any in major malls that I've missed?
