If they don’t have it, it probably doesn’t exist.

Ok maybe not entirely true but I’ve learned that it’s not because I don’t see it that’s they don’t have it. ALWAYS ask them, they will more often than not have it somewhere in those packed shelves. Little store at the bottom of the HDB that we are lucky to have next door…. with a food court and a wet market. #iLoveMyNeighborhood

We used that have them in France, the small version of the hardware store… La Quincaillerie. The British translation is ironmonger. If you look up the word in Spanish (European or Latin American) it says ferreteria but in Argentina we had one next to our place it had “Quincailleria” on the storefront, they loved everything French and I guess they wanted to be it and there also I could find everything I needed.
