Previously I posted some of the kitchen taps I had fallen in love with. As you know we had a successful trip to Masters where we managed to chose all our tapware but we made the decision to splurge on the kitchen tap and get my dream bridge tap. When I looked into them here in Australia I was astounded to find that they were over $1200. I naively had thought around $400 would be a splurge - apparently not!
I was deflated for a while but figured there must be a more cost effective solution. My journey led me to a plumbing supplier in London who sold my tap for 95 pounds. Bingo. I had figured that as they are English tapware they must be cheaper over there and I was correct. the next problem was that they didn't deliver to Australia so a quick call to Mum and she set me up with a friend of hers who was willing to have the tap delivered to her and she would post it on. Perfect.
I ordered the tap, within days it had reached my 'go-between' and was posted on to me. For the last couple of weeks I have been patiently waiting for it to arrive and this morning it came.
What a great start to my day. I think part of me had thought it would never come.It is exactly as I hoped it would be so I have spent the morning gazing at it, and feeling rather pleased with myself. (the pic only shows the top of the tap) I got my tap for a grand total of $320 - quite a saving. Now we just need a kitchen to put it in!
