View Full Version : Buying towels

Hey all, first of all, I'm alive and well. So, I understand and want to preemptively apologize if this is in the wrong place in the forums. Anyways, I realized that I left my towel back in my hostel in Tallinn, and naturally it occurred after I got back to my apartment. Anyways, where is a good place to buy them and are there certain brands you'd recommend? Also, giving away the remnants of my cover of my location, does anybody happen to know places in Mitino where I possibly could find said towels? Spasibo!

Is buying a towel such a hard thing to do in Russia ?

Tasel, it's you're the experienced spy:12115:, ConanS just has finished his 1st year :)

Well, last ones I bought in Bulgaria, at summertime.

Closest to me is Varshavskoe shosse, 125 (it's ~1 km long building, proximal part), kitchenware shop, they also have housewares, including towels.

And, of course, IKEA - nearest to your Pyatnichka is that in Himki, Leningradka, left side if you go to SVO.

But I'm pretty sure near those 2 metros in Mitino you can find them... oh, and don't forget to check Otrada shopping center, further by Pyatnichka to Krasnogorsk, right side of the shosse.

Awesome, thanks! I realize Auchan may have them, but the information about places in my neck of the woods is handy

Ben, it's you're the experienced spy (see my reply to tasel above). :D

Novices can't imagine radio market with towels. Just not in their universe for the moment.

It's so called Main Russian Military Secret (C) :rofl:

About blankets, pillow shells etc - don't buy cheapest ones, they often contain polyester threads with cotton - this leads to ESD and less comfort. Pure cotton ones are much better.

I bet that's what you tell all the girls. It's too big to "up load"

Did your roommate wait until you got home from buying a towel to tell you you need sheets too? You could have bought them in the same place. It must not be very comfortable sleeping without sheets. So the saga continues.
