* The Jeans Factory Marbella Outlet

If you thought there was no outlet shopping in Marbella, then think again. Head on over to the Jeans Factory Marbella Outlet located just off the A-7 (N340) highway across Funny Beach and not far from La Cañada shopping center. This family run business offers designer brands (many which are hard to find in Marbella) at discount prices including jeans, hoodies, polos, t-shirts, sandals, socks, underwear, suits, track suits, push-up jeans, belts, shorts, and party dresses. If you´re out shopping, pop on in…you are sure to find something. Click here to read more...

* Looking for telephone with headset

One of our readers is setting up an at home business and is looking for a place locally to buy a telephone with headset connection. We´ve got a few answers on this one, but maybe you could help out with other possible venues. Our reader asks, “Where can I buy a business land line telephone with a port to connect a headset with microphone near Marbella or online? In corte ingles and la canada I can only find cordless phones or very basic cable phones. I need that for my home office.” Click here to read more...

One of our readers asks, “I am interested in learning massage and, as I work full time, I wondered if anyone knew of any relevant evening courses in the Marbella area? I'd be interested in Swedish massage and other holistic techniques ideally leading to a recognised qualification.” We´ve had a couple of leads, so take a look if you are interested or please add to the list by posting a comment.

Child friendly restaurants in Marbella

I have to admit that Marbella is pretty good when it comes to bringing children to restaurants. This is a beach town with plenty of families on holiday so the locals are used to serving children and often offer children´s menus and don´t mind the clean up after the storm. However, if you´re looking for a particularly child friendly place, take a look at what there is available here in Marbella. Click here to read more...

* Looking for Dutch books

It seems as though one of our readers is in a bit of a bind when her daughter ran out of Dutch books and is desperate to find somewhere in the area to buy them. If you are a Dutch reader, maybe you can help out? Click here to read more...

* School uniform exchange

With six more weeks of summer left, you may be starting to think about the children´s school uniform. Don´t forget that we have a forum dedicated to exchanging, selling and buying secondhand uniforms. If you´re switching schools or have children who graduated, pass on those uniforms that are still in good condition to others needing a bit of help. School uniform prices are staggering so every little bit helps. Click here to read more...

The most interesting part for the children is the evening fair with rides, games and other attractions. Click here to read more...
